Thank you to Bryan Gourlay for sending me this photograph of a car used by his dad and aunt to tour the north of Scotland in 1938.  In this photo, Bryan's dad is sitting on the car bumper.

"My Aunt canít remember whether the family owned the car, or more likely, it belonged to my dadís best friend John Brown the founder of the Eastern Motor Company. My dad apparently often used to borrow a car from John, who I remember had premises in Lochrin Place, Tollcross after the war Ė before moving to a showroom right next to the Assembly Rooms in George Street.

Here is another photo of the same car, but in this photo it is Bryan's Aunt beside the car.  This photo was taken at the same location as the photo at the top of the page.
