A new car for the New Year

We start 2012 off with a Whitstable Times picture from exactly 50 years ago.

1962 - New cars

Ford Anglia – I bet these guys thought they had reached the pinnacle of their jobs with these.

Fifty years on: Garage gone, Arthur Collar Ltd gone, Rover gone. Residential flats now where this picture was taken – Tankerton Road, to the left of the car/coach park.

It’s also doubtful if the photographer would have got this shot nowadays without being run over. Cars – who needs them!
