What a cracking little car and what about the cap, I'll bet his clogs had to have new irons every few weeks. Photo was taken I believe when this young lad lived in Mawdsley Street, around 1927

What a wonderful photo & in amazingly good condition. I bet he was a bit of a scamp , careering down the pavement in that car. Bless him.
I inherited a similar car from my brother, I have a pic of me in it aged about 3yrs but it wasn't taken in Wigan or even England so probably wouldn't he able to post it...

Walter, this car looks to be in better condition that some of the old Mini's I used to run in the 1970s.

Still a lot of old bangers in Wigan.
