--31 Holland Coachcraft Van (1935-36)

Hi all,
Been looking for some mechanical Horse pictures for another thread, and just found this and couldn't pass it by...

Although the streamlined "teardrop" styling fashion of the 1930's may not have been entirely practical in terms of reduced carrying capacity, it certainly was stylish and a good advertising tool. Castlebank was a large commercial laundry  and dyeworks company near Glasgow, and had a sizeable fleet of vans and lorries of similar design. A London company, Collars Limited, also had at least one. The photo is of a model I made, based on a whitemetal copy of the Dinky toy Holland Coachcraft Van. Interestingly, Holland Coachcraft did not actually build any of these vans, they were built by a variety of local coachbuilders who paid Hollands for rights to use the design.
