That's Peter Renou in his Astura. I should be seeing him in a day or two, as I'm on my way to Castlemaine. Regards, John

Reading the article : "It was also expensive the in 1935 standard saloon cost a whopping 895 in England".

Using the Bank of England inflation calculator that comes out at 53,900. 

That sounded quite cheap to me for the class of car but "whopping" seems appropriate when Autocar had the Aprilia at 298 in 1937 which is becomes 17,190.
