24. Special not with original registration
A damaged Tickford – possibly dropped whilst being unloaded from a ship. Was she rescued or written off?
Notes from Wayne Brooks:-
I received this copy of a period photo of a badly crashed, probably written off, TA14 drophead, silver with maroon wings, and landau irons, probably in the Chicago, area from Bill Potter (son of Earl Edward D. Potter 2822 US). On the back is written “indla derm 12800 Stony Island” (Probably 12800 Stony Island Avenue, Chicago, IL, in the Illinois International Port District) The Tickford appears to be perched on a pallet. I wonder if the poor thing was dropped while unloading it from a ship? Earl Potter imported over 200, mostly English, collector cars, including at least five pre-war Alvis, via the Port of Chicago. So he would have spent some time in that area. According to the records held by Bill Potter, Earl did not import any TA14s???
