SIR,

GREAT Priceless photographs. It was nice to have a glimse of good olden days traffic
Senario. It will be nice if we can have similar photos of BOMBAY in late 50,s and 60,S
The great cars on the roads compel you to think "I wish I was born earlier to enjoy
those times.

Default 1947 Jaguar 1.5 Ex Kurundwad Junior

Got these two pictures last week from HH Hariharrao Patwardhan of Kurundwad Junior showing my Jaguar when it was with them.

How I wish I could complete the restoration and send him pictures of the restored car !!

I always wondered what that hole on the top was made for and now it is clear that they had a sort of pilot light fitted there.

The regestration number was "KURUNDWAD Jr. 5" and later was regestered on a early bombay series.

Many Royalty cars had that red pilot light on the roof, near the windshield. The car at the rear has one too.

Below a wedding photo, on the nameboard behind can just make out Dr. and surname Desai, cannot read his first name.
What car could this be? Bristish? An Austin?

Cheers harit

Yes they did but I am just happy to see pics of how my Jag looked like when it was new and it only goes towards adding to the cars ptovenance.

Why not ask them if they can arrange for you a flag as is seen on the radiator cap? It would add to the provenance.

Below is a picture of a Bombay Vintage, car is a bit battered, registration probably before 1930's. This seems to be a British car, but not a Morris.
And the gent, a Parsi for sure, who is he? I have already posted a pic where he sits on a Jawa BMV registered.

Cheers harit

I have actually asked thm to send over their monogram so that I can stick it on the doors on both sides......much better than just the flag wouldn't you agree
