What I want to know is how did they get a shine like that on the old wagon?

It's taken me a while to work out where that was taken on Water Street. I pass it on a regular basis coming down Stoneybank and round the bend but there are always cars parked in front and you have to concentrate on traffic coming the other way or out of the junction. That's my excuse anyway! :smile:

I think it's (was) an Austin Westminster - I had one in the 1960's in Germany. Got me the nickname 'The Baron'.
3 litres and 20 mpg, but fuel was very nearly free. So were cigarettes- it's a wonder I survived. :smile:

I could never make up my mind whether it was a Westminster or an Oxford David. The chassis underneath was a Leyland Comet tractor unit!

Earby Brass Band Club circa 1974/1975

My big sister Shirley Brett with Bill Luty.
Bill was either the president or the treasurer of the club at that time.
Sadly Shirley was killed in a car accident on Barlick New Road in 1976.
