The bottom image with the Mini is a screen grab from 'the Champions,' filmed in '68 ;)

Yes, and I haven't seen a Renault 16 like the one in the picture for a long long time.

They rusted badly and didn't survive did they. VERY comfortable car and a clever design in their day. Preceded the Maxi by several years.

Not Mini related, but a great building. The Daimler Garage on Herbrand Street, London WC1N.

As can be seen from the interior shot it was still in use in the 1970's by the Hertz Chauffeur Service.

Later it was used by the London Taxi Centre, but now is a 60,000 sq ft office block

Good article here on the history of the building
