High Street, Marlborough old posctard late 1970s

Almost no cars of the 1960s to be seen here, the green Mini being the only one?

 

A good showing of BL products on offer. The white Allegro HHR 553N was a 1300 SDL, which looks to have been scrapped in 1987. The red Maxi 1750 OAM 539M did slightly better, making it to the end of 1988.

 

Ford are represented by at least one example each of Fiesta, Escort Mk2, Cortina Mk4 and Capri Mk3.

 

Not much foreign stuff immediately obvious, just the yellow Mk1 Golf and a Datsun 100A estate just beyond the Viva HC (or is it a Magnum?).

 

Looks like the photo was taken quite close the shot below, about here: goo.gl/maps/owYzkdcdNQXdemks9

 

Card sent in August 1983 to an address in Shipley, Yorkshire at a cost of 12.5p. Published by ETW Dennis & Sons Ltd, ref. M.2097.
