Hi
I was trying to see if there was a Cooper Bristol there, but I can't see an "elephant's trunk" of any of the 3 different lengths.

What about your big Dodge or the Commer could one of them be in the row of service/transporter vehicles at the back?

I've found 3 old B/Ws on You Tube.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQBERlxRNi4 white noise only, on the audio, for this one.

I suspect the photo is from about 1952 or 3. The first video is from 1948 (Alfa at 39s), the others late in the 1950s.

Hi
Ask Howard if he can clarify that location.
All the residences in Marsh Ave and the Marsh Lane/Wyberton low Rd area are bungalows and the old maps don't suggest the area has been redeveloped.
