It's the Rolls-Royce of Bentley websites.

Conduit Street Mayfair, London

Here is a great photo from 1913 at 14-15 Conduit St, Mayfair of the the Rolls-Royce Alpine Trial Team getting ready to take off on another adventure.



100 years later today I walked past the same spot on Conduit St.



Yes, Rolls-Royce has left the building, replaced by a clothing store.



30 years ago in 1983 Team Bentley Spotting member David Irvine walk past that same spot and saw this.

Yes, it's AX201 the Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.



Today it's a little different, but the street is much the same.



But don't despair - notice that blue circle on the building up there?



Yes, it's from British Heritage.



Charles Rolls used to work here from 1905-1910.



Lord Montagu of Beaulieu, founder of the National Motor Museum and former chairman of English Heritage unveiled the plaque in 2010.

As I was leaving the corner, an appropriate modern car drove past.

I thought that was cool!
