Thank you to John Dickson for commenting on
the cars in this photo.
"I think these could be a Morris Cowleys,
John Dickson, Royston, Edinburgh: February 27+28,
John also sent me a photo of a
Morris Cowley from this period. The car in John' photo looked
similar to those in the photo on this page, except that it had no bar
running in front of the radiator linking the headlights, and the radiator
had a broader surround and no line running vertically down the centre of
the radiator. Perhaps John's photo was of an earlier model.
1920s or 1930s
I had originally captioned the
photo at the top of this page '1920s''
However, after reading
John's comments about another photo of the City Cars taken elsewhere in
Central Garage, possibly on the same occasion, I've changed the caption to
read '1920s or 1930s'.
