Straker Squire Standard 35 Seated Single Deck Rear Entrance Bus
28 x 39 inches. A Near Fine example with creases from folding and pinholes/wear to the corners, but without any major damage or discoloration. Could be easily ironed flat at its final destination. Plans dated 3/3/21 and marked "Code Word: RUNKOEK" (for the telegraph, perhaps?) The vehicle was presented at the "Fifth Commerical Motor Exhibition" in October 1921 and reviewed in The Commercial Motor (18 October 1921, p.53): “The Straker-Squire: A-type chassis, which is made to carry loads of 3-5 tons, is of exceptional merit, and embodies certain features not to he found in any other vehicle... A fine example of the coachbuilders' art."
