Although later on these Hillman Imp Estates were called Hillman Husky’s, when they first came out, they had an ‘Imp’ badge on the front. Although we bought this photo, it looks like it’s part of an aircraft museum along with other vehicles and aircraft as well.

British Eagle was a well known airline in the 1960’s & 1970’s, and in their earlier days operated Bristol Britannia aircraft amongst others. It had a complex life of mergers and takeovers until it finally went into liquidation in 1968.
