Snaps of Chorlton No 9, the family car 1928


An occasional series featuring private and personal photographs of Chorlton.

The year is 1928 and this is the family car of the Holmes family.

Mrs Holmes is sitting in the passenger seat and I rather think that just peeking out over the steering wheel is a very young Marjorie.

The picture was taken in Mr Holmes work yard which was part of the farm yard of what was known until recently as Greenwood’s farm and stood on the east side of the green where Finney Drive is today.

Now I have no knowledge of cars so would welcome some advice on what the car was.

Picture; from the collection of Marjorie Holmes
