A trip in a 1935 Rolls Royce and Electric Brae

Update 26th March 2016

I was delighted to be contacted by Sven from Liechtenstein who is the current owner of the Rolls Royce. Sven has a web page on the history which you can see here . I sent Sven the photo album and now the album is reunited with the Rolls Royce again.

The magnificent Rolls Royce 20/25 as it is today

A small pocket sized complete photo album from the 1930/40s. It's in beautiful condition. The 1935 Rolls Royce 20/25 is taking center stage and a little Googling I was happy to see the Roller is still around. Seems like it's had a bit of a life, spent most of it's life in California and then moved to Holland and then was sold on and the location unknown.

The original owner was Sir Emmanuel Hoyle of Huddersfield and from Wikipedia "Hoyle (23 September 1866 – 9 May 1939) was born at Longwood, near Huddersfield, the son of Joseph Hoyle, who had established Joseph Hoyle and Sons, woollen cloth manufacturers, in 1865. He was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in recognition of his wartime services in home defence transport. In 1922 he was created a baronet, of Longwood in the West Riding of the County of York."

Thanks to Victory Cars for the sales advert, click here for photos and more info on the Roller.

UPDATE  I've just had a comment from Anton that the Roller is now residing in Liechtenstein. Great!

A new hat and a little surprise

Here's a very nice series of a young woman showing off her new stylish hat. When I looked at one of the scans at high resolution I was a little surprised to see a young face jump out from behind the gate!
