Used car site on Water Street, Scotswood Road, 1958


and a bonus Advert for Osram lightbulbs just peaking into shot there :)

"The Wonderful lamp" was one of Osram's catch phrases, in the same way Mazda had "Mazda lamps stay brighter longer"  :)

heres an example from the front cover of an Osram lamp catalog

Interesting to see a LHD Imp. I wonder which country it came from? Anywhere in mainland Europe would be quite a drive in an Imp!

Looks like a German plate to me, and the BN suffix would be from Bonn.

Fairly sure there was a ferry service between Hamburg and North Shields.
