Where's That Then? No 4

A trickier one, maybe, and no buses to help everyone along. Perhap's the clue to narrowing it down a bit may lie in the brewery initials up on the pub. I like that bloke with his hands in his pockets. I've got a jacket like that, and I wonder if he brought all that stuff to Quiztown in the back of the car. Talk about an Antiques Roadshow, what with the Staffordshire dog (not a clue) and the copper kettle on the roof. OK, off you go.

Crumbs, a tough one. M & B would be Mitchells and Butlers, yes? Which puts us in the Midlands. But this isn't Birmingham. Some timber-framed West Midlands town? Like Ludlow, but not Ludlow, I think. I'm stuck. Over to the rest of you.

The Swan Hotel, Stratford upon Avon, just by the bridge? - a guess really based upon faded memory - I am lost without a bus!

You're both right that it's the Midlands (M&B's Brew 11- Brewed For The Men of The Midlands) and Philip you're close with the West.

It's the Swan at Bridgnorth, Shropshire. Not changed much today.

Diplomate said...

quite right histman - i do remember a particularly good breakfast at the swan about '83 '84 having arrived a bit early for a meeting, excelent black pudding

Some clever buggers around these here parts.

Peter Ashley said...

Well done Histman, Bridgnorth it is. And I could do with some black pudding now actually.

Philip Wilkinson said...

Doh! Yes! Been to Bridgnorth a few months ago too. Should have remembered.

I actually got it! A day late, but I got it. Yippee!

Well done you fellows. What looks like a nice Jag parked outside the Swan - clearly the boss has taken young Mavis from the typing pool in for a port and lemon as a precursor to 'extra curricular activities'. Amazing what's in these photographs...

Gosh, I'm useless at these, apart from never being awake in time! Perhaps I can redeem myself slightly by identifying the rather genial market trader's car as a Ford Model 'B', circa 1933.

I don't think he would have had much trouble carrying his stock in the car - it was virtually identical to the American model and some were fitted with a 3.2 litre engine.

I agree with you, Jon, it certainly does look like a Jag parked across the road. Might even be an S.S. (i.e. pre-war). Definitely a cad's car, anyway!
