This image, from a summer day in 1963, appears to show nothing more than a packed car park at London Airport (renamed Heathrow in 1966, after the hamlet – Heath Row – that was demolished in 1944 to build it). But to aficionados of vintage European cars of the less-than-exotic variety, it is pure gold. A keen eye will spot a Ford Consul, a Riley 1.5s, a Hillman Minx, a Triumph Herald, a Morris Oxford, a Singer Vogue and a very grand Jaguar Mark IX.
