This North Western Gas Board mobile showroom is
from approx 10 years earlier than the previous
picture. In addition to the appliances mentioned
earlier, domestic gas fires were very popular.
The vehicle above is a "Karrier Bantam", and has
a starting handle at the front. Karrier was part
of Rootes Group, which included Hillman, Humber
and Singer cars, and Commer and Dodge lorries.

The starting handle was common on all vehicles around that time.
