No disrespect, but does the length of the skirt above the knee reflect the age of these three ladies?

Lovely photo how ladies should look, very nice era.
The car their leaning on is a Sunbeam Rapier with St Helens reg DJ.

Cath is my mum, I remember her and Phyllis used to be good friends. Love this photo.

I wonder how much those cars would fetch in today's silly money classic car market.

Not the same, that was Baldwin Timberlakes.

Garry, Timberlakes on Wallgate was H.H. Timberlakes, long
before Baldwins appeared.

Comment by: Garry on 13th September 2017 at 18:35

No, Baldwins were British Leyland. They came later on!!

Timberlakes was a BMC (British Leyland) dealer, but this car is from the Rootes group, a white Sunbeam Rapier, the sporty coupe model of the Hillman Hunter. The trio of ladies are obscuring the St Helens registration, possibly anything between RDJ500-599F.

Looks to be offering Green Shield Stamps or free grasses, we had so many of those glasses we eventually had to give them or throw them away.
