The most popular subject seems to be the Fourteen, whose owners have embraced the blog. Eileen has promised to continue adding to the page with more photos. The 4.3 page contributed by Wayne Brooks is much followed and he too is committed to further additions. Meanwhile I will add to the Graber page. I am pleased to report Malcolm Kindell has agreed to host a TA21 page. We have only used 15% of the available space on the website so keep the photos coming in. The interest and encouragement from outside the UK (which for the record, is enjoying the longest day today and glorious late evening sunshine here in the east) is very pleasing.
It has been quite a busy week with requests for information and offers of help from Alvis folk. On the other sunny lunch time this week I met up with a co-trustee and friends and our ever enthusiastic Historian Dave Culshaw. Dave has promised another P P S article when he has recovered from sorting through masses of memorabilia from the estate of Ernest Shenton, more of which in future posts.
Dave and Wayne have also been helping with the history of a Mayfair Speed 20 that comes up for auction next Saturday…..
Today the Newsletter from Coventry included a picture of the “Alvis” Alvis, see..
I have added some more photos to the Speed Models page, thanks to Paul Bamford in Australia.
