All Shapes And Sizes

Vehicles at the waterside _02

Today’s image from circa the 1930s is a professional photo stamped on the back: F.DEGOTARDI WILLOUGHBY.

What an interesting gathering of yesteryear’s vehicles of all shapes and sizes! In this “car park/queue” by Berowra Waters you will notice hard top and soft top vehicles, two seaters, five seaters, buses with and without luggage racks, a small truck and perhaps a partially obscured motorbike with a sidecar. Can you identify some of the models of vehicles?

Men and boys have gathered near the circular omnibus stand sign while three able bodied people, desisting from claiming a place in the cabin, are seated in the back of the small truck. Is that possibly another cluster of people close to the water towards the Rex Jones REFRESHMENTS advertising sign?

Our thanks to John O’Neil who donated this photo, in a set of eleven, from the collection of the late Pam Gartung.
