Same in Cologne:

A lot of European 50s postcards predominantly show just cars, or car parks. I have no idea why.

Hmm, not sure. I imagined something like an early Corolla. A quick image search of the late '60s model shows that it's probably the coupe version.


The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

That P4 is exemplary for the driving style there, that persists to this day. Always smack in the middle of the road.

So the hapless Farina driver had to do what I had to do all the time, swerve onto the verge.

I think it's Whitechapel Road in 1965 but there's nothing recognisable still standing.

Well spotted! I could not recognise any buildings on Google Streetmap but you are right.  I traced the location by searching for the jewellers A Taite & Sons.  Some of their stuff comes up for auction occasionally and from one of the items a link showed the same photo.

Yes it is the Moreton central sugar mill tramway. It was closed when the sugar mill closed down in 2003 and the only remaining section is the heritage listed bit that runs through Nambour.

These were in my pile of stuff to be scanned, seemed an appropriate time to do something with them:

 

OldPostcards_0123.jpg

 

The Parade, Mundesley complete with 2dr Consul Classic and something a bit older further along?

 

OldPostcards_0122.jpg

 

Sandy Gulls Caravan Park is apparently still there. The website says their touring park is for adults only, always makes me wonder what goes on at places like that.....

 

Are the two people in the top left photo trying to break-in to that caravan?

 

OldPostcards_0121.jpg

 

Not Mundesley, but of possible interest to our Austrian correspondent.

 

Sent in October 1978 to an address in Letchworth with the following message: "Dear Mick & Julia, Austria is a great place! Very friendly people, beautiful scenery & steam engines! It is also B. expensive to eat and live. Hope work is going well and you are enjoying life. See ya soon. Cheers Dave."

 

That photo pre-dates 1978 somewhat. A couple of vehicles stood out for me, the Commer truck and black Minor amongst the Beetles, Opels and Mercedes. Thoughts about the white estate in front of the Commer? Any other oddities that I've missed? Bus looks quite smart.
