Byegone transport photographs Page 5.

A fourth page of transportation related images showing classic and vintage vehicles in the past.

Old photographs continue to turn up, and be featured on oldclassiccar. If you have any old images showing cars, vans, lorries or whatever in olden days, I'd really like to see them and, if possible, feature them on this website.

Identifying old photographs

Perhaps the trickiest thing to deal with when looking at photographs of old cars, truck, coaches and the like, is identifying the make and model of vehicle shown! More recent cars, say from the 1950s and 1960s, aren't usually too difficult to identify. Cars from the 1940s and before can be much more difficult to pin down, especially if the grille is obscured.

I've got quite a collection of motoring books, and they often shed light on cars that I've got photos of. Failing that a mention on the site forum can also turn up a positive id on a given vehicle. If you have photos showing a transport scene, but where you aren't sure what vehicles are being shown, by all means scan them in and email them over, and I'll see if I can help. Cars that I've not yet been able to identify often get featured in the Mystery Car photo section.

Here is another selection of early motoring photographs that have turned up....thanks to everyone who has sent in their own pictures to date, much appreciated as always! First up is a smart Mini traveller, photographed in the early 1970s and sent in by a regular visitor to this site.
