  1. I am a leading edge baby boomer who grew up just a few minutes outside of British Columbia, Canada's capital city of Victoria. Being very close to the province's centre of government didn't guarantee we had such things as a dial telephone.

  2. Shelvoke and Drewry "Freighter", about 1934, tiller steering, unique transmission, no.clutch pedal.

  6. This is the most well known of Vancouver's chain of Aristocratic restaurants,which was located at the intersection of Granville and Smithe.

  8. With a rear spring set up like that, no splash apron and right hand drive? Not Studebaker.
  9. Devons have hydraulic front and mechanical rear brakes. Somerset are hydraulic at all four corners.
  10. Austin Devon and Dorset 1947-52
  11. Both the inlet pushrods and exhaust valve stems are on the outside of the V so one camshaft on each side.
  12. Push rods for the inlet valves can be seen.
