Arthur Brown and Rolls Royce at Hyde, Handcross

The photograph shows my uncle, a young Arthur Brown, probably taken just after cleaning one of the two Rolls Royce cars on the Hyde estate. Within a few years of this photograph he married Hepsy Doggett from the village.
The Large Version shows another Rolls Royce from the Hyde garage.
Select Open Document to view three cars parked in the garage on the Hyde estate.
The car on the right of the Rolls Royces seems to have Austin Six on the radiator and it is probably an Austin Twelve-Six from the 1930s with a straight 6-cylinder engine.
Also included is another photograph of Arthur Brown, this time with the cook at the Hyde using a Rolls Royce as a garden bench! It seems that the cook has just enjoyed a radio-active breakfast, but perhaps it was simply Ready Brek!
