Delivered to W. S. Boas. a Substitute District Judge for the Court located in the Haag. Amsterdam. At the time W. S. Boas was residing at the Doelen Hotel in Amsterdam. This magnificent building dates back to 1627 & has recently been identified as the “Kloveniersdoelen” for which Rembrandt originally painted his “Night Watch”. In 2009 after many years of research Dudok van Heel has managed to identify each of the 18 figures depicted within the portrait. no mean task indeed. Famous visitors to the Doelen have included the Beatles. Queen Victoria & the Empress Sissi. daughter of Duke Maximilian of Bavaria & wife of Emperor Franz Joseph – her cousin who was initially affianced to her sister! In 1867 Empress Sissi was crowned Queen of Hungary. she ruled for 44 years until her assassination in 1898! By November 1955 CLW12 had returned to England and it is noted on the chassis cards that the owner was then Louis R Rawlings of 37 Grosvenor Square. earlier occupants of this property include Duke of Bolton. Marquis Londonderry. Hon Lawson JP & Baron Wenlock. In the 1970's the car was again shipped to USA & since then has led a somewhat glamorous life mingling with the stars of the big screen with roles in the films Ocean's Eleven & High Roller!
