A Ford Zephyr estate car - probably my father's favourite vehicle - at one of Croydon's first parking meters. This was a rare estate version in Linden Green with a large cargo area behind the rear bench seat into which we would load suitcases for family holidays. An essential accessory was a Calor Gas stove and kettle for inevitable brew-ups at the side of the road during our wanderings throughout Southern England. Probably taken circa 1962/63.
