Wolseley 8hp hire car.Where are all the Wolseleys now? they were popular in their day, right through to the 1970s, yet rarely are seen now. Firstly, this Wolseley 8: unfortunately the registration number of this particular car isn't visible, but there are some notes on the rear of the picture:
"Hired car - Wolseley 8. Betty at wheel & Bob as passenger.
Time 12.00 midday approx. Dull but bright"
Sadly there is no mention of a date, I'd guess late 1930s or sometime during the 1940s? A close look at the photograph shows that the lower sections of the Wolseley's chrome grille have received a few dings, but otherwise it looks presentable enough. Is that an Austin parked in the background?
1934 Wolseley NineJD sent this photograph over, found in a family album. Although not an 8hp Wolseley, it seemed like the right place to add this little photo in.
It shows a 1934 Wolseley 9 six-light saloon, parked at the side of the road with his sister playing on the grass verge. The photo was taken circa 1938 he believes.
