RIP Dennis Waterman, one of my TV heroes as a kid. 

Loved watching the old Flying Squad when I was younger with my Dad, great memories those. Dad fondly remembers seeing the series back in the 70's on Thames, a great bit of nostalgia for him as my Grandad had a Ford Consul when it first aired.

Absolutely gutted to hear the news today.

The wings didn't last a year in the UK , I would imagine the boat journey alone would have had the tin worm breeding like mad

I don’t think they salt the roads in Finland, probably lasted longer than in the UK.

The old bus station in my town which was demolished a few years ago and a new station built into the railway station because people are too bone idle to walk 5 minutes

Newest cars I can spot are a Ford 100E or Phase 2 Vanguard which would make that 1954 or just after. 

Pre-MoT days when a lot of really old cars hung on Post-War.

What's going on with the car on the right?  It seems to have only one headlight, really low down.

Is that not the sort of lighting allowed in war time? I think pic is post war but obviously some people used the same car and never changed the lights .

Weren't they called "pass lights"? They were meant to illuminate the kerb for about 50 yards in front of the car. I'm not sure about this, but when I was a child (early 1960s) I vaguely remember 'buses having these large lamps mounted low down and on the near-side, angled towards the kerb.

What is that? Hmmmmm...a Fiat 1400 or a Peugeot 403? 

I don't think it's a Mini - too tall against the Minor next to it...no idea what though.

I thought the car on the right was a Standard Vanguard phase 3.  There was also a Mercedes that shape.

The sort of thing my Gran was doing 80 years ago when she was a Land Girl.

Tractor is a 1946 onwards Ferguson. No idea what model - never seen that trim on the bonnet.
