Standard Flying Fourteen, 1936. In remarkable condition for a 25-year-old car.

Regrettably, I cannot agree with this identification.

1) There was no Flying Fourteen in 1936, the 1767cc engine was introduced in 1937 according to my reference book. The 1936 cars were either the Flying Twelve or Light Twelve, 1608cc, or the six cylinder Flying Sixteen, 2143cc, or Flying Twenty, 2663cc.
2) The 1937 Flying Fourteen had both doors hinged from the rear, this car appears to have the doors hinged from the B-post.
3) The Flying Standards had an all chrome radiator grille based upon the 1934 models' design until the 1937/8 introduction of the waterfall grilles which were used up to the deletion of the Flying models in favour of the Standard Vanguard.
4) A feature of all the larger Flying Standards was a draught deflector which took the form of a piece of glass about 2 inches deep which was fixed to the window openings at the top. This is not present.

5) This car has a painted surround to the radiator shell, and has a more upright stance than the larger pre-war Flying Standards.

It's not easy to see, but I would suggest that this is a 1945 Humber Hawk Phase I.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to take anybody's cookie away.

I grew up in a little village in the middle of nowhere, and didn't discover girls until after I had become completely obsessed with cars. Most of the cars in the village were pre-WW2 so they became kind of imprinted on my memory, a bit like Pavlov's dogs and their dinner bell. Many of the girls were also pre-WW2, and in need of a wax job and a new MoT.

OK, I feel a bit better. A bit. Between the ages of four and seven I lived in Birmingham - Acocks Green, to be exact - and later Stourbridge, but largely my experience mirrored yours, johnfromStaffs. My Dad's Morris Eight Series E was the first post-war car in the street.

I knew it well - not far from Hall Green. My school bus was the 1A - Acocks Green via Moseley.

I was born in Edgbaston, occasional trips from the wilds of Staffs in Dad's Citroen traction avant to visit the children's hospital, followed by shopping, introduced me to the delights of Crossley buses and Lewis's toy department.

Small private nursing home, I pre-date the NHS, and am one of triplets, my surviving brother had some birth damage, hence several years of visits to the children's hospital. The hospital was at Ladywood near Five Ways, not sure if it's still there.

I think it may have been demolished; the Princess Diana Children's Hospital is now in Steelhouse Lane, not far from what's left of Snow Hill Station. However, for nostalgia's sake ... http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2511468 (I lost my appendix there in 1944.)
