minister_for_hardship Posted November 10, 2014 Share Posted November 10, 2014 Spotted this on online wanderings... http://blog.findmypast.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/fig8-1927-30-claire-dulanty.jpg Fig.8 Great Southern Railways charabanc outing, Ireland c.1927-30 - click to enlarge. Charabancs were often used for group outings in the inter-war era and this snapshot shows colleagues or friends riding in a charabanc bearing the crest of the Great Southern Railways. The SVVS advised that the GSR was an Irish railway company formed in 1924 which also took over several private bus operators in Ireland between 1926 and 1929. They identified the vehicle as a 1927 Lancia Charabanc, offering the earliest possible year for the photograph, while the men’s appearance suggests a date no later than 1930 (Claire Dulanty) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
