Bramley Motor Brigade, group photograph (Bramley)
Black & White imageUndated. Image shows a group of men, some wearing overalls, posing for the camera with their vehicle. The sign displayed reads 'The Bramley Motor Brigade, we tackle difficulties as a team & play to win'. Another sign reads 'Look up for the air plane'. The vehicle is possibly an old 'Morris Cowley' as the sign indicates. Morris Cowley's were first introduced in 1915 and continued in production until 1958. The photograph is taken in front of an unidentified stone building where a bicycle is parked, and a miniature motorcar is suspended by chains from the vehicle. There is a possibility that this was a float entered for a carnival.
