  1. Car and a bus in the street at Coolangatta, Queensland during a visit to Australia by Leopold Amery, British Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs, 1927-1928. Can the vehicles be identified?
  2. https://trove.nla.gov.au/work/159556319 Photo page From the Western Australia State Library collection. This photo purports to be of Jim Grady, "First moter bike across Australia". I assumed that meant east to west. I've searched the National Library old newspaper files, and Googled on, but found no further information. If anyone knows any more about this chap and his "moterbike", I'd love to hear.
  3. 1916 Calthorpe Minor.
  4. Only pic I found without battery box or spare wheel on the running board.
  5. A car in Tasmania, Australia, described as a single-seater in its caption.
  6. Bingo! Google search on your suggestion revealed the 1903 Daimler 22HP Charabanc
  7. Old Australian photo, a tour group at the Jenolan Caves. Can anyone identify the vehicle?
  8. A bell? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  9. I think you may have it. 1920 Dodge tourer below.
  10. That's what I thought at first, but the images I checked had parallel radiator surround sides, where this truck above, the radiator surrounds seem to slope in at the sides? pic, 1923 Dodge Graham Canopy Express.
  11. Creator: Wood, Reginald, (compiler.) Published: [ca. 1880-ca. 1930] Physical Description:1 transparency : glass lantern slide ; 8.3 x 8.3 cm. Summary: Victoria, Australia. Shows truck with canvas cover on the back, two men in uniform (not military) standing either end of the ferry, two men in suits standing either side of the truck. I'm thinking schoolkids or sports team going somewhere. Can the truck be identified?
  12. Does that type of door handle suggest General Motors, or were they common? Someone elsewhere suggested it was an English "STAR", Built in Wolverhampton, circa 1908, but I thought the radiator badging said not.
  13. Place & Date Depicted: Mount Macedon, Macedon Ranges, Victoria, Australia, 1910 Summary: A man and two women in a car in front of the Waterfalls Hotel. A second man stands beside the car. There are two spare tyres strapped to the running board. Does anyone recognise it?
