Not quite MPS but Deano's Bass Daimler Bottle car image above links to this. It one sold in 2009 - apparently they only made about 5.

We've mentioned Franklin's on this thread so adding here. Jenny Pedder added this shot on FB recently of Franklin's staff on MPS taken sometime in the 50's. Anyone know what number they were? Edited by member, 8th Jun 2021 10:07 am

In the 1950's I worked at R.E.P. next door to Franklins and that address was no 33. On the other side no 35 was as I remember an old shop belonging to the Gilberts. They must have been there a long time as they were living at 35 when my father installed electricity in the R.E.P. premises in the 1920's. He told of an incident when he and his mate were wiring. He had to take the power from the ground floor to the first floor. The practice was to thump the ceiling with a piece of wood until the man upstairs located the noise. His mate kept shouting that he was close but could not find the right spot. My father was interrupted by Mrs Gilbert tapping the window and she asked him if he would stop banging as it was under their bed and her husband was trying to sleep as he was on nights. They had not realised that the properties, being about 16th century, sometimes overlapped.
