A Sample Article from the November - December 2010 Mascot
THE AUTOMOBILE, JANUARY 1994 Photo discoveries - sent in by John Taylor
John Shakespeare of Skipton, North Yorkshire, discovered this picture of a used car business in Grays, Essex. In 1939, his father, Len, was negotiating its purchase for £50, when it was unfortunately destroyed by a bomb!
The original article John sent was on the other side of the page - it was a photo of a 1936 LM BXW 471 and appeared in the March-April 2010 Mascot.
I was about to tidy the page away when I noticed that the 3rd car from the left, APL 619, is, I believe, a 1934-5 LM, complete with bonnet strap.
APL 619 does not appear in either the RAC or DVLA records - not surprising, as it was presumably blown up with the rest of the business. Ed.
