PICTURES: Driving to the Pub, 1956

MG Magnette, blueprint plan.

A slightly odd one, this: we came across an old brochure advertising MG Magnette saloon cars dating from around 1956 featuring the following two wonderfully of-their-time images.

MG Magnette parked outside a pub, with two female models.

This is the brochure’s centrefold; the pub is the Barley Mow at Clifton Hampden, not far from Oxford.

MG Magnette parked outside a pub while two women have orange juice. (And vodka?)Anyone recognise this pub with a ‘Smokeroom Bar’? It’s probably in Oxford, we reckon. UPDATE: @guidomax on Twitter says this is the Crown & Thistle, Abingdon.
