Coming soon
Interesting image of the Rolls crashed in Beckenham Rd opposite Kenilworth Rd. I have just bought that one on ebay, there are another 2 images in that series. The vacant site behind the billboards is where The Kings Hall cinema/music Hall was.

I love the billboards in the background. They were actually rather beautiful back then compared to a lot of the rubbish we get now.

I don't think it's a rolls by the way. I'm not sure what it is, possibly an Alvis or a Jaguar.

I recognised it as a Sapphire, but I do not think I could have given the year!

The full name of the car is a Rolls Canardley.
