Your paragraph in the February issue telling “How the Wensum got its Name,” had me searching through old photographs, and I found the enclosed, which I hope may be of some interest to you and your readers. The car in question was—I think—a special body on a 30/98 Vauxhall Wensum chassis. Painted in cream and green with radiator, lamps, etc., in a bronze finish, the top of the bonnet and rear of the body was as “decking” in cream and walnut.
At that time the car was in the stock of Messrs. Barclay and Wyse of Great Portland Street (my first job in the motor trade) and they very bravely let me take the car on the 1927 M.C.C. London-Exeter Trial. Thank Heavens we got a “gold” and I kept the job!
