My brother six years old, is collecting numbers from Licenceplates. He of course prefered those from abroad. This was a great one! He is with his parents on a trip to see midsummer festivals in Dalecarlia, they lived in Västerås.
Here is my fathers car (with licence plate) the same trip

Dudley Castle, Castle Hill - 1994 - vintage cars and picnics

We must have gone to Dudley Castle sometime in 1994, as I took this photo and it was in the album. Lucky that I noted down what it was on the back of the print.

This shot, for some reason, I noted it as Dudley Zoo, but think it is Dudley Castle (the Zoo is in the grounds).

Not sure what is going on here, vintage cars, picnics etc.

If I was to ever go back to Dudley (on my own) I would want to take a digital shot like this. Probably best to wait for the Spring before going there (assume I could go on the bus using my bus pass).

A shot of the castle on Castle Hill.

Dudley Castle - wikipedia

Dudley Castle is a ruined castle in the town of Dudley, West Midlands, England. Dudley Zoo is located in its grounds. The location, Castle Hill, is an outcrop of Wenlock Group limestone that was extensively quarried during the Industrial Revolution, and which now along with Wren's Nest Hill is a Scheduled Ancient Monument as the best surviving remains of the limestone industry in Dudley. It is also a Grade I listed building. The Dudley Tunnel runs beneath Castle Hill, but not the castle itself.

The castle ruins are Grade I listed.

Limestone faced with reddish sandstone. C14 oblong keep with semi-circular towers
at angles. C14 barbican and curtain walls. C16 hall with remains of 8-light transomed
mullions. Chapel with undercroft. Remains of minor adjuncts, kitchens etc on
opposite side of upper bailey. The castle was visited by Queen Elizabeth I and
was inhabited until 1750 when it was destroyed by fire. AM.

My grandfathers car is nearest. "X" on the plate is for Gästrikland, Sweden
Before 1967 - when Sweden switched to drive on the right, it was a business about sorting that out at the border.

Anybody who can identify the car model?

'28 Ford Model A

Nothing Japanese here nor "Made in China," just old-fashioned American hardware. The '28 Model A is called the successor to the wildly popular Model T. This vintage Sports Coupe belongs to a neighbor and comes complete with restored rumble seat. They have quite a collection of antique models in their garage. I guess today's the day to take it out for a spin, maybe to the nearest Dairy Queen.
