Painted Boxes: Charabanc

This historically inspired utility box is in Holly Street, Avondale, at the corner with Victor Street. In the 1920’s Mr McCarthy was developing a transport business in Avondale using this early version of a bus, called a charabanc.

The box is unsigned.

(Lisa Truttman, The Timespanner, has a couple of posts under the heading “The Motor Car Changes Avondale” here and here.)
