Park Royal Vehicles Ltd.


Here is Part 3 of the Park Royal Vehicles Early 1950's publicity material series. This part features 6 more Park Royal models for the export market, 1 trolleybus and 5 motorbuses. As with the pictures in Parts 1 & 2, some of the original black and white photographs were colour-tinted, with varying degrees of success. This was a common practice in those days, a period when hand drawn artwork was still the norm on advertising.

The text accompanying the pictures is Park Royal's.

All the pictures are clickable to see a larger version.
