Hmmmm, that's trouble with going down the track of convincing yourself that it must be in one area...

Like Taff, I find it hard to believe that those cars were being used as late as 1951.

Taff and Quickbeam - They must have been meticulously careful looking after those magnificent vehicles.

Magnificent they may be but VIP cars that are 3 decades out of period in a time when auto technology was changing weekly, makes it akin to the Queen using a Freddie flintstone car now!

I think they may be travelling in a pair of 'Long Johns' as it looks a bit nippy...I can't say what the model number is.

I think the royal visit must have just visited the Earl of Sefton as they are just emerging from the grounds of Croxteth Hall.

"In the 1850s, Lord Sefton remodelled West Derby Village to make a suitable ‘gateway’ for Croxteth Hall. The old chapel was pulled down and replaced by a grand cathedral-like parish church to reflect the status of the area. New buildings were put up around the newly-created Village square while an imposing gateway and lodge guarded a sweeping drive leading down to the Hall."
