Car Park photographs.
1. Thousands of cars at the Farnborough airshow.
Thanks to David for scanning and emailing the first photo over, taken around 1960 and showing thousands of cars parked up in the public car park area at Farnborough. The variety of cars now called 'classics' visible in this photo is amazing - a quick look and I saw cars including a Hillman Minx, Ford Pop 100Es, pre-war Humber possibly, Riley One-Point-Five, Morris Minor traveller, upright Ford Anglia 10hp, Austin 8 or 10, Austin Cambridge, Mk1 Ford Consuls, VW Beetle 6v, and in the far distance a gathering of single decker coaches.
It was at the 1960 Farnborough show that the RAF demonstrated their quick reaction ability, by scrambling each of their V-bombers (Avro Vulcan, HP Victor and Vickers Valiant) into the air in just 1 minute 47 seconds.
