They bought split-screen Minors, though, bless'em.....

 

That was that gahdam Democrat again. But we'll catch him sooner or later.

Some rather ham-fisted colourisationising going on here (but it is Gt Yarmouth):

Great Yarmouth old postcard '1971' by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

The Minor Traveller has ended up with a rather curious colour scheme. The '7' on the right looks a little dubious too......

 

Looks like the postcard publishers were still at it in the 1980s:

This is actually pretty interesting, not so much for the Audi 100 Coupe (unusual sight as it may have been) but for the Datsun by the bus stop which is remarkably still around:

Only a true shiter recognises a car thirty five years after it appeared on a discarded seaside postcard.....  Brilliant! 

 

On another subject, that Mk1 Escort is almost certainly wearing a "Cust-O-Magic" side stripe - pre cut from quality* vinyl and available for popular models.  I can remember the small ads in Car Mechanics and Hot Car!

What coaches did Shearings use then? Was it the Plaxton Paramount?

Good God, nothing so luxurious - Plaxton Panorama's based on some old Leyland underpinnings if my memory of the wheels was anything to go by.

There was me thinking it was a genuine sporty model......

Wellington Pier, Gt Yarmouth old postcard (early '70s) by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

 

Love the contrast between Mk3 Cortina 2dr and the Pop. Shame I didn't scan this in at a bigger size, but I think all the cars can be identified.

 

This one was sent in August at the end of the long, hot summer of 1976 to Grace from Mrs Bunting with the rather brief message "Lovely here after the storm so hot".

I bought this one in Malta.

 

36550095066_5d21cff7f5_z.jpg

 

In a fervour of foresightness completely untypically for me, I also snatched a picture book about Maltese buses at the time.

I can't possibly clad in appropriate lyrics how glad I am that I did it.

This might be moderately interesting for those who are moderately interested in such stuff
- an ex RATP TN6C obviously used as a skiers' shuttle in the 1960s.
