Love the street lamps. I think I remember them from the 1980s.

I think the street lamps had new tops on them by the 80's, and then they all got replaced with Victorian style ones when the railings, flower beds and driveway bricks appeared on the road.

In the bottom right corner, the Ford Escort van (which looks quite new) carries a GCM registration. They were issued in 1957.
Behind the van is a very rare Ford Consul Convertible

Looks very 60's to me. Is that the Royal Iris at the landing stage?

Looks like it. Do you remember the Hardings charas that would park outside the Palace to load up for a day trip to Blackpool or Southport?

Don't think the convertible is a Ford Consul - it's too small and the Mk1 Consul didn't have a horizontal chrome bar across the grille. Can't say I know what it is, though... it looks familiar but I can't put a name to it...

Is the convertible this type? I think the horizontal bar
is the sunlight reflecting on multiple vertical curved
chrome bars. Looks continuous at that distance. Don't think
there were many other similar cars around at the time.

Yep, its the consul, you can even make out the bonnet badges.

Looks like the lazy sod didn't bother folding the roof down properly, bet it leaked next winter wink
