The little two seater with a man and woman setting in, may be an Auto Redbug. Some had electric moteors, and some were powereed by a Briggs andStratton hanging off the back.

The streetcar is a Blackpool England open tram or "Boat Car". San Francisco runs one as part of the historic F Line.

The little car with the lady driver (JCK 232) is a second generation Bond Minicar. It had a 197cc Villiers two stroke engine which would turn 180 degrees. My Dad's did not have a reverse gear so he could drive it on a motorcycle license. One time my Dad, Mum and my brother were in the front and I was in the back and we went about 50 miles...
It was a chain drive and the main chainwheel kept coming loose until a local blacksmith hot rivited the thing onto the wheel.

Is that Queen Mary in the Citreon? Wife of King George V... I wonder what the event was?

Alex,

That is who I thought it was when I first saw the picture.

In that prop-driven ice boat the wind chill must be a killer.
