What's going on with the Morris Minor. Has he double parked?

It looks very much like it, not much space left to park at all.

Somebody had some money in that road. A Vauxhall Velox Mk1. It kind of stands out amongst Moggies, A35's etc.

That looks like a Mini slotted in behind the Velox, However, The Mini wasn't launched until 1959 and that pic is dated 1957. Any Ideas what it could be?

It does look like a Mini. Maybe someone got the date wrong?

Think it's an Austin A30, also known as a baby austin, there's another one across the road.

To think I used to live a few hundred yards from where these pics were taken, albeit about 50 years later.

Both these pics are of Hockley Brook.
Sorry but the other pic is not uploading for some reason.
