Photographer's Note

Another picture from our little "mini" TE meeting in Oxfordshire in August, 2012 courtesy of Richard Beghin

Here we were walking along Oxford's Longwall Street and passing the gate to Magdalen College when I was delighted to see this beautiful and immaculate old car pass us by.

And not just any car, this is an Austin - and, to be precise, a 1925 Austin 12 h.p. Windsor saloon. In its day, the Austin 12 was a popular British motor car, being efficient and very reliable, if a little slow, and they were extensively used as taxicabs, particularly in London.

For those eagle-eyed people here, yes, I did post a photo of this same car back in 2012 but , although in the same street, it was a different shot - and I think this one, taken a few yards farther along the street, is maybe just a little better!

Here are the co-ordinates of the location: 51.753022, -1.248475

ISO 400, 1/200 sec at f/11, focal length 55mm.
