I now own a EH HOLDEN PANEL VAN first owned by Queens Bridge Motors 31 Queens Bridge Street South Melbourne.

Please put me in contact with people who have photos and stories to tell about Queens Bridge Motors. Some of the older guys who worked there are still alive.

I am restoring EH HOLDEN PANEL VAN and wonder if photos exist.

cheers

Dear Balfizar,

I thank you greatly for the reply about Queens Bridge Motors and in addition the two images that you sms'd me. Please help me find where you found the images please so I can print them out on home computer. What is the source for the images/photos of the Queens Bridge Motors Factory please?
