Visiting the vans original owner!

Had a great day on Sunday visiting my vans original owner in Sheffield, who is now 92.
Quite an emotional day with her son and daughter hearing about all the old camping trips throughout the 60s and 70s.
They thoughtfully gave me some copies of their old camping pictures, which I absolutely love!

That's lovely. Thanks for posting. We used to have one of those toilet tents. The exact one!

I bet that was an emotional reunion.

I'm not crying, you are :)
What a great day that must have been for everyone and such a brilliant history in those photos.

Fantastic bit of history. Interested to note that the cut out above the rear wheels was done by the original owner (about the same time as he started using colour film).

Excellent pics. I regret not visiting the original owners of my van who was a similar age. They even owned a campsite!

yes I spoke with his son about it. He amended them to access the wheels better. Know it created a bit of debate about the conversion
