My grandfather,William Alfred Luke, was head porter at the Old Ship Hotel in the early 1900s. He was working there at the time of the 1911 census for about 20 years.
A mystery Rolls Royce
I found these two photos and was amazed at the crowds surrounding a white Rolls Royce (grandad is in the foreground). They even have the bonnet up and are peering into the engine. They wouldn’t be allowed so near it now.
Can you help?
Who did the Rolls Royce belong to I wonder? Have you any ideas? Please leave comment below if you can help.
