While we are on the subject of Annand and Thompson.

792 Flinders Street or 421 Flinders Street This must of been taken around 1958 as the dealer for VW in Townville before then was Fred's Servicentre which were on Charters Towers road.  Also the number plate on the front Land Rover is a new QLD type white letters black backgroun first issued Jan 1955.



Could be where it was.

A very interesting topic. Thank you LRO53. On my computer, I can see the attachments/newspaper ads on the first postings, up to reply number 6. After that none are visible. Are these attachments lost (or is it just my poor internet connection)?
