The red three-wheeled van on the right with the single head-light.

I remember seeing these before...but who made them, I don't know.

Yes, I found that Reliant did the Regent but the front door window was different, in the picture I found...also Raleigh did a similar van the Karryall from about 1930. Information from http://www.3wheelers.com there appears to be almost all three-wheelers listed there - but there is so much, its difficult to search all the photographs.

If you look at the post-war Regent you will find that the door window matches perfectly.

Thanks Junkman...found it - they introduced sliding windows at the same time.

Go a couple of frames forward and you might be able to claim an AEC Regent as well ;) - the registration plate should be clear enough to id it as either an RT or RTL.

SteveA, I don't think its possible to read either the bus ident or the reg number but I will post it anyway, (plus the Morris Minor that is in the scene as well).

Hi Sunbar, I reckon the top line of the registration is MLL. Of the batch of numbers MLL501 to MLL999, 20 were RTLs and the rest were either RTs or RFs (singledeck)- so the balance of probability (since the destination display is also indistinct) is that it's an RT!

Sliding windows replaced the canvas side screen in 1949, Regent name introduced a year later...
