Almost Z Cars - A Jubilee Vintage Police Display

A Humber Police model from the 60s - note Tom
peering from behind!
Further to the children contributing colouring pictures to an enormous birthday card for The Queen last Saturday there was also a splendid retro display of vintage Police equipment in Newport shopping centre including two classic Police cars from the 1960s.

A classic Morris Minor -which sported
a tax disc that ran out three months
before I was born!
I have to admit its fabulous seeing such cars as these from an era where the motor vehicle seemed to have more character. They also reminded me of the TV series Z Cars - boy that brings back memories!
This policeman was representative
of the wartime era - note his Civil Defence
Corps strap
