Further to my previous post, enquiring after noted local businessman Ralph Ferrie, the anonymous reader who supplied the original clipping has once more come forward, as it appears they forgot to include this image with the article. I’m not sure is this shows Brownhills Motor Sales workers or those of McNeillie who renovated the car, but that’s certainly Ralph in the hat. I’d be intrigued to know who the long haired guy in the overalls and tie with the big, cheesy grin next to them is, too.
Cheers to anonymous, and if anyone has anything else to add, please do. Still very short on Ralph material… but there have been good contributions from David Oakley and David Evans. lease, do contribute if you can.
