SOLD - Sandbanks Ferry with Ford Popular circa 1956 Original Painting
What's the Story? - This original painting of the Sandbanks Ferry is the 3rd in the series based around the history of Poole harbour. The painting depicts the 2nd Sandbanks ferry used during WWII alongside the 1st, both built by J. Samuel White & Co Ltd (Isle of Wight) It was in public service at Sandbanks from 1952 to 1958, having a capacity of 8 cars; I've included a couple of iconic Ford Populars. The colour scheme of the ferry was obtained through research and guess work, Cunard had red and black funnels to hide rust and smoke deposits and the red stripe feature came from an article I read.
