Vanguard Van from the Barr Family

 The Vanguard Van working in Essex

Hi Phil,


With the East Anglian Rally announced for Clacton on Sea, I am not sure if you are aware, but my family lived in Essex, prior to the move to Malmesbury in 1969.


My Grandfather, who was also called Leonard Barr used to run a chain of Radio and Television shops in Clacton and the surrounding area.  At one point in the early 1950's, one of the business vans was a Vanguard Van.


A copy of a picture is attached, which I am afraid is not very good quality.  It was taken somewhere in Clacton in the 1950's


This was sent to me from one of my uncles, I have contacted him again to try and borrow the original.   


Best wishes,



Leonard Barr
