The Conversation



Going back in time at Beamish Museum, the two characters talking in front of the Livery Stables in the Victorian town.

 

The car is a  unique 1914 Crescent Cyclecar, the only known survivor of a marque that was manufactured in very small numbers from 1911 until 1915. KT 5704 was manufactured by Crescent Motors Ltd. at their Britannia Works in Smethwick (Birmingham) in 1914 and has an 8hp engine with chain drive to the rear axle. The rear axle was not fitted with a differential, instead the chain only drove one wheel, the other being driven by a friction drive.
