Dr Graham Smith writes: "I discovered this photograph in a book called  'Lost Cornwall'. Before the Tamar Bridge was opened in 1961, the only way to travel to Cornwall from Plymouth, by car, was by using the ferry; unless one took the much longer inland route. This picture of the Bodinnck motor ferry shows it carrying what looks to be an Austin at the rear, but what is the make of the car at the front?"

Andrew Howe Davies was competing at last weekend's Prescott Vintage Hill Climb when a lady came up to him with this photo which belongs to a friends family. They would love to know the make and year.  Andrew adds: "I thought it might be a (UK made) Star , the radiator has a distintive angle at the bottom , which might help."
Editor; we only can add, that the lady at the helm of B3258 seems well prepared. Even for use on Prescott Hill her fine hat looks like good for anything. The dog seems at ease as well. Yorkshire terrier?

number plate

We have just moved from Britain to France and we are living in the mayenne while converting a barn into a garage for my 2 MG VAs 1 of which is 0251 the protype VA which i brought from my good friend bas de voot. The plate was uncovered by the digger while preparing the ground for concrete. Can any body tell me is it for a car /tractor? Possibly how old the vehicle might have been?
