  First car in Grateley c.1915

 
This interesting photo dated about 1915 is reported as being the first car in Grateley. We think that it is a model T (Ford) registration number AA4845, which was a Wiltshire registration. The car belonged to the Boutcher family who bought it as a replacement when the horse the family used to pull their carriage was requisitioned for the war effort! The driver is a man called Alfred Spreadbury.
