A 12hp tourer on holiday, Westward Ho. I'd say a 1921 model.

Here's a grainy photo of my car back in the day.  It was published in a book about ACs.  Would love to get my hands on a better copy if anyone knows the whereabouts of the original.

A 12hp sports entering Swan Square, Burslem, one of the five towns known as "The Potteries", probably in the mid 20's.

Another AC in Burslem, St John's Square this time. A 1920/21 12hp, with sidelights mounted on the screen pillar's and a bulb horn. They were it seems quite popular around the five towns. Henry Farr & Sons, Newcastle under Lyme were one of the agents. In the 1960's I ran a TR4, and I used to call at their spares department for SU parts, for which they were the local agent. Eddie the manager knew I had an AC, and when he saw me there, he came to the counter and asked " hows the Acedes"  ;D
