Hi all,

Mike E sent over this photo that he scanned from a negative earlier today, and suggested it'd be interesting to see a thread of old photos that belong to forum-ers on here. Ideally they'd be transport related of course, but anything with an interesting theme to it would be equally welcome I think.

Here's Mike's photo anyway. The coach was in the operation of Hancock's, I wonder if it's the same Hancock's as features on this page of the main OCC site: http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/motor-tours.htm? HB is a Merthyr Tydfil registration series.

Thanks Mike.



RJ

I can't remember whether I've posted this before. Brighton sea front during the Daily Express RAC Rally. I think it was 1951.

Neat photos Peter, and a bonus A40 Sports in the background no less!

These are a few samples of a small group of slides I was given a few years ago, which apparently are of a vintage car run in the Manchester area. At least one of them might make a decent caption competition.

Central Garage Retford, mid 1960s - note the two Austin Healey Sprites in the showroom; as an Austin agent he would not, of course, have an MG!

That garage looks superb, what a piece of nostalgia not like our modern faceless service stations.

That photo was taken in 1965 by the architects responsible for this 1966 facelift:



And just out of interest, the same garage in 1937:

I bet they were very pleased with that facelift Smile Interesting series of shots Mike.

Some very interesting photos there Mike.E. The first shows two Edwardians; the one in the distance is obviously a Rover but the car in the foreground is a real rarity; a 1907 15 HP Niclausse Landau. The radiator emblem is a cockerel on a steering wheel.

Thanks for that, it certainly would make some sense as the negative is from either one of my parents, who are from the Colwyn Bay area. I have another photo of it, unfortunately they're on something like 120 film and my scanner only does 35mm, I got away with the other as it wasn't a frame-filler.

Re the images from the road run, I won't post the whole lot here, but this is (or should be) a link to the album: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmdNDc1L

Mike, with an ordinary negative, try scanning it on a normal flatbed scanner and then inverting the image in your editing suite.
ie on Photoshop Elements it is Filter>Adjustments>Invert (ctrl+I)

I will give that a go - in that past I've had access to a scanner which has a backlight instead of the normal lid, which worked very well. Not got it any more though, and only have a very small number of large-format things to scan.
