Singer 10 hp

This is a photograph taken on the Exchange Station car park before the start of the Manchester to Blackpool Veteran & Vintage Car Run organised by the Lancashire Automobile Club in June 1986.
It's a 1923 Singer 10 hp and the programme of the event had this to say about the car:

26      1923 Singer
           Reg: ND 1891  4 cylinder 9.7 hp
           (Clive T. Cooper, Cheadle Hulme)
This Manchester registered car would appear to
have remained in the area all its life. A product
of the takeover by Singer of the Coventry
Premier Motor Co., it represented an entry into
the popular market, being a less costly version
of the Edwardian 10 hp model. The engine is
overhead valve, actuated by exposed push-
rods. It runs on beaded-edge tyres and has rear
brakes only.
