    In 1926, production of the Overland ended and the marque was replaced by the Whippet brand of small cars. In the economic depression of the 1930s a number of Willys automotive brands faltered. Stearns-Knight was liquidated in 1929. Whippet production ended in 1931, its models replaced by the Willys Six and Eight. Production of the Willys-Knight ended in 1933. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willys

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] That's a rather lovely one, despite saying there may be "Yoemen" in the photo. Confused about the numbering though. In that early one, no. 10 is McDonald and no. ?? is Hodkinson. We definitely seem to have an 11 over the door of Crotty's by 1928...

    The Overland Willys Whippet Limerick A bit of a dog was the 'Whippet' - So a little bird told me (a pipit). As this photo depicts It came in '4' and a '6' Willys size doesn't matter, so stick it!

    Whippet, made by Willys-Overland of Toledo, Ohio. Or most likely their branch in Canada, it was standard practice to concentrate right-hand-drive production of American cars at the Canadian plant.

    Two years since we posted this 1920s Poole photo, we've yet again come across the Crotty brothers (Daniel and John) and their garage and coach-building business. This time we find their (original?) Dungarvan business in a Mason photo - taken perhaps at least a decade before the Poole shot: www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/21257954994/
