About this image
Mr Beevor's father was a commercial traveller for flour mills and owned the Austin Seven in DCHQ008061. He and helpers turned the vehicle into the decorated ship as seen here, to raise money for the local hospitals at carnival time. This ship is the third ship they made, called 'SS Charity'. The carnival took place after the procession, on fields at the back of Belper, where there is now a warehouse.
Picture includes Mr Beevor, third from left in dark blazer and also Mrs. Beevor at the front and A Beever (donor) up top in the control room.
