This photo has recently come to the museum. It is captioned ‘First hospital week – 1921’.
It shows a wonderfully decorated car in the High Street in Easterton.
The Hospital Weeks were always joint events – Market Lavington and Easterton.
Now sadly our knowledge stops at this point. It is a wonderfully sharp and clear photo but we can’t name the driver…
…or his passengers.
That looks like a collection box on the side of the car.
The car may be too well decorated for recognition.
These look like electric headlamps but others may well be acetylene lamps.
We’d love to hear from anyone who can add anything more about this image.
