Yes,indeed. My father had all four models proudly displayed on the mantlepiece during the 1950s. As young children we were not allowed to play with them - under any circumstances!

Sadly they seemed to disappear when we moved house in the mid-1960s Crying or Very sad

I'm sure everyone knows this but the company went on to call itself SME and make superb pick up arms for playing LPs.

Hi
While doing some research for a brief history of learning to drive, the driving test and the Motor Schools assoc to which I belong, I came across these.







I know Nailsworth Ladder, rarely used these days, I think they have to get special permission even for anniversary events. Ashley probably knows when it was last done as it is in his area.
BUT What and where is/was Mutton Hill?

Mutton Hill is a new one to me. The only Mutton Hills I can find are near Hayle, in Cornwall, near Pembroke in South Wales, and near East Grinstead in Surrey. None seem to have the right topography to have a one mile 1-in-4 climb, and I cannot find a hairpin bend near any of them either. However, there are lots of Shoulder of Mutton Hills...

It looks like it has to be at about 105 mile radius of SW7

Advert from 1948 for Aston Martin Lagonda. The Lagonda 2.5 saloon is recognisable, but the artist's impression of a new Aston Martin 2 Litre Sports is of interest.
