    I think the black car on the right side of the photograph is a Standard 10 from the late 1950’s.

    The date 5.8.61 might be close to the mark.

    Regards, Bill

    Thanks for getting us started Bill. The text at the top of the image to my eye reads “5-S.61.L” rather than 5.8.61 – so whether the 61 is reference to the year the image was taken is unlcear.

    No way can that be 1961. No second or third series Holdens to be seen, anywhere.
    I’d say more like 1951.

    A lot of cars switched from separate wings and fenders to straight sides around 1955. The Standard in 1954, the FE Holden in 1956, the mid-sized Austins in 1954. Fords earlier in 1952.
    Only one such car, the first one on the right, has such styling.

    I would say 1949-1950. Most of the cars are late 30’s cars with a few immediately post-war. The black car is a Ford Custom introduced in 1949. The car on the left is P3 Rover from 1947-49. There is also a Series 1 Vanguard dating from about 1949. No masses of Holdens means earlier than 1951 though they were about in lesser numberes from late 1948.

    Vauxhall? or Vanguard the black car on the right the one in front of it looks like a ford, is the car on the left a hard top standed.
