Another evocative picture from the van der Weiden Collection showing the Works cars at Holyhead Road – annotated 1991 but the works transferred to Walsgrave in 1990 so whose photo is this and when was it taken?

  1. John, Ref Alvis police cars, I posted the following link in the register a couple of years ago. It is a clip from the Scottish Screen Archive showing a staged police chase with on of the Glasgow Police Force ‘Silver Eagles’ made in 1934. It is worth noting of its existence in the Archive or even maybe getting a copy Cheers Chris http://ssa.nls.uk/film/0373?search_term=alvis&search_fields=Film.*&search_join_type=AND&search_fuzzy=yes Date: Tue, 22 Apr 2014 14:27:01 +0000 To: chrisabdn@hotmail.com

  2. My late husband, Bert Adams, bought his 1934 Alvis Sp20 SB Cross and Ellis tourer in 1958 and used it to fulfil his role as a representative of a local company travelling nationwide in it. He still owned it when he passed away in August last year.

  3. Long term Alvis ownership. My father bought JT8896 Sp 25 Charlesworth dhc in 1953. On his death in 2005 i took on the ownership of the splendid car , she has been with the same family these past 61 years, does family ownership qualify for the long term record? Anthony Norton AOC No 10541 SW.
