Very nice photo, brings back sweet memorys. I got my first car in 1965, and it was an 1959 Austin Mini. And at the same time, I thought the Triumph Herald, was the most beautiful car in the world.

Thanks for this lovelly picture.

Greetings, Leif.

Ha ha...I thought the Triumph was cool too! I had an old mini in 1986 and I kept it until it died, I loved it!

All the best, Rosa.

Lovely set of photo's Rosa, I visited Beaulieu about 5 years ago, loved every minute. It was quite expensive tho' Like. Cheers John.

Hi Peter, thanks for the link...very interesting! I think in retrospect we can see all the mistakes!

Best wishes, Rosa.


Thank you John. It is quite expensive but very enjoyable. You can keep the ticket for a year now to re-visit though. I thought the Abbey was beautiful, I would like to go back in the spring.

Best wishes, Rosa.
