Good Evening All

One for the night shift before I turn in, my brain hurts ;o}

This is really A GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD in that we do not know the make of the rather battered car, I enclose a scan of the postcard back also although I cannot see it being of much help? click here, click here

I'm turning in, G'Night All.

Apart from the postcard postmark of Somerleyton I have no idea as to where the Postcard was from.

No doubt someone on here will find out where and when.

I'll bet that she had no problems cranking that motor over, she has a very self confident and determined look...

...is it Bonnie Parker?

  Noldi 29 Oct 11

I would say the car is a Bently by position of the spare wheel. Noldi

Quickbeam, I have just noticed, one of the headlamps is missing, probably lost it in a quick getaway from a botched bank robbery ;o}

Noldi makes a change from the type of car you are normally associated with!

I'm thinking the style is pre-WW1.

By the way, is it a car ID, or is it who's stable block we need to ID...?

  Quickbeam 29 Oct 11

The clothes look '20s, but the car looks to be older with coach styling from a horse carriage and possibly a French styled one with that high raised scuttle. It's right hand drive, but does that make a difference, I didn't think the driving side was necessarily set in stone in the early years. If it was a Bentley there would be a flying B on the bonnet.

Quickbeam, the former, I reckon it will prove nigh on impossible to ID the latter.
