Old Kennings (London) Ltd. Dealer Ad

Here is an ad from 1977 (the date was actually on the back) for Kennings Ltd. A U.K. Rolls-Royce & Bentley dealer.

I'm pretty sure it's the same time and place as the Connolly ad below. Even the tree on the right side of the house is the same shape. So, therefore the other Connolly ads are 1977 too. I think the guy with the Corniche playing croquet is the same person as the one in the Connolly shot - he definitely has the same hairdo  (Well, we all had hair like that in 1977...).

Now for a photo from Kennings Ltd.

And another. Note that the Wraith II outside and the Spur inside have the same number plate. The Wraith II is obviously being traded in for the new car.

The Kennings dealer in the picture was in Berkeley Square. The workshop was in Montague Street.I worked for them in the 70,s and 80,s but at the Staples corner branch where we held the royal warrant.
