Any idea what the third car is in the first photo? (I don't know why, but something says "Austin" to me?)
More wonderful photos! Thank you Dane.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Dane,

Thanks for the great series of photos. I've enjoyed the collection.

Wayne, the car to which you referred could be a Citroen. The rounded radiator top and rounded front are typical, as are the disc wheels. Many of the English cars of the time sported Sankey type steel spoked wheels.

Note that some of the trucks have the Ford logo painted on the hood and the legend "one ton truck".
These are Duncan and Fraser trucks sold in Adelaide.
The one with the extra seats is doubling as a Charabanc for tourist work, usually weekend activities. The ridgepole along the top carries a tarpaulin to cover whatever loads it may carry during the week.

A lovely collection of photos.

I agree. The last car in the 1st pic looks like a Citroen. Most of them were smaller than Ts.
It appears to have solid disc wheels and may even have a locally made body.
There is something on the radiator if someone knows how to enlarge it so we all can read it :-)
The truck with the wool bales is carrying & pulling quite a load!!
