Queen Street, Oxford, UK

1945-mg-tc-police-oxford-1
What at first glimpse looks like a typical pre-war scene in Queen Street, Oxford (click!), is in fact a photo from the early post-war years. It must be because if you look closely at the MG TC in front, it can be identified by its licence plate JJO 722 as one of the two police cars that were employed by the Oxford police. As there are lists of MG's used by the police forces this one can even be further identified as having chassis number TC0281, which is only thirty numbers from the first MG TC produced in Abingdon in 1945. The other one employed by the Oxford police force was JJO 721 with chassis number TC0280. No doubt these cars have had a hard life so I wonder if they still exist?
