I bet he wore two tone plimsolls and a fasciated sweater with his boater,

because I'd have done the same.

Isabella saloons were fairly common back in the day (possibly a biased view caused by dad being in the RAF, thus exposing us kids to more foreign stuff, thanks to postings in Germany and advantageous purchasing schemes - hence our RHD Ford Taunus 17m!) but the coupe was rare indeed.

Thirsk in that Yorkshireshire.

 

Several Renaults in that Thirsk shot, otherwise all looks to be domestic stuff (with a lot of BLMC ADO16s). Neat matching pair of Mk1 Cortina estates, though I prefer the 2dr Mk3. I’m wondering about the conversation between the two chaps by the Marina, discussing levels of understeer perhaps? Looks like the road painters were struggling with their markings either side of the zebra crossing……

 

A later card I have:

'ere, Mr Junkman, I've got a copy of that Tehran postcard.  What are the chances of that??????

 

I also have one from Tehran at the same time with two LHD AEC Regents (buses).

 

We passed through Tehran in about 1971.

That was when I was for the first time in Beiruth. I was 7 or so.

My father opened a branch of his civil engineering office there, in partnership with a Lebanese architect

and my mom a branch of her fashion house, in partnership with his wife, a fashion designer.

A few years later their dreams got pulverised.

We did travel to Tehran quite a bit when I was a kid, my father and the Lebanese architect had several

building projects there.

 

Tehran and Beiruth were paradise in the early Seventies. A bit like Italy, but with proper food.
