Interesting old English photo's,
The first one [the double decker] I believe was a WW1 truck converted into a mobile tea room , The half track is a Citroen Kegrese. At least one AA Truck crept in
and a Bedford truck
any one else identify anything !!!

Researching Court Houses about twenty years ago, I ran across a Commonwealth of Virginia issued "Definition of Motor Vehicles" which I believe came from the US DOT about 1920 or earlier. It was very amusing and interesting...I will try to recover it and reprint it for you. Swoff

There is a restored boat shaped trolley like the one 5 down on the left at the Rio Vista, CA Railroad museum. I'm not sure I remember correctly, but I think it ran to a beach in either England or Australia.

Default Here's one of my favorites

Here's one of my favorites. Aimee Semple McPherson began calling her church "The Salvation Navy." The name didn't last very long.
