Thanks, Carol, that's much clearer.

The left hand car is an Austin A30, which according to Wikipedia was made between May 1952 and Sep 1956. A registration number beginning SGF would be consistent with that, and would have been issued in London - October 1955 onwards. (Source: http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/registrations/reg-letters.htm)

The other car is a Morris Traveller (the estate version of the Morris Minor). The slatted front grille came in in Oct 1954, and the split front windscreen went out in 1956, so it dates from around 1954-56. The best match I've found in registration letters to fit that date is a series beginning DM (ie DMA, DMB etc - 15 in all), which were issued in London in 1954.

Based on this, I'd tentatively suggest the building might be in the London area.

Thanks for that Arthur, that's a big help and gives a big clue to where it could be.

The traveller reg looks like D- MT which puts it in 1955 Registrations. But how old is the car?
And it's not currently registered.

I couldn't find it either - though I suppose it could be outside London, and just a coincidence that two London cars were there. Never mind, it filled some time....

Thanks Arthur, I appreciate your time  ;)  Yes Dobfarm, I thought it must be 1950s as my Uncle had a Morris Traveller.

Can you remember whether this was with a similar group of postcards or was it just random?
