A handsome. correct and very sound example of a traditional. spacious limousine with a nicely light and airy interior. The coachwork is good and strong. with good door fits. etc. older paintwork. perhaps needing some attention. and a good clean interior. with occasional seats. etc. The car is impressive to behold. with its imposing frontal appearance. runs very well. and is to be sold re-commissioned. serviced. prepared and newly MoT tested. following its recent return from the USA. where the car has been for more than thirty years. and where in recent years the engine has been thoroughly overhauled.

Chassis No. GRO80. £32. 00.

Snippets: The Lady of the Lyons -

Registered to Mrs Alfred Salmon at her home in the regal Albert Court Building in London; Frances Abrahams & her husband Alfred Salmon were 1st cousins as their mothers were sisters & scions of the Gluckstein family. The Salmon & Gluckstein families were the founders of the tea & coffee firm of J Lyons & Co. Their direct descendants served on the company's Board of Directors until 1981 - Neil Lawson Salmon being the last member of the family to do so. Mrs Alfred Salmon was the great-grandmother of the well known television chef Nigella Lawson – Nigella's mother. Vanessa Salmon. was the grand-daughter of Mrs Alfred Salmon. Prior to living at Albert Court in Kensington Alfred & Frances Salmon spent their early married life at 115 High Street – this was during the time of Jack the Ripper and in 1888 Alfred signed a petition requesting extra police patrols in the Whitechapel area during this period of fear. Frances Salmon died in 1946 having survived Alfred by almost 20 years. it is unknown as to how long she actually owned GRO80 or who the second owner was – perhaps there is family member who can help with this.
