This photograph was taken in June 1993 at the Village Hotel in Cheadle prior to the start of the annual Manchester to Blackpool Veteran and Vintage Car Run organised by the Lancashire Automobile Club.
The programme of the event in 1993, as with the previous year or two, was very sparse, containing only a list of the cars entered in the run together with their owners - whereas previously little snippets of information about many of the cars had been included. This car, however, wasn't even listed in the programme and the only thing I knew about it was that it was a Star. But I've found photographs and details of this particular car on the site of the Star Register, so I now know that it's a 1909 Star 4-cylinder model with a 12hp engine, and the owner is a P.Whitty.
