hi cobber i have studied the photos too.. im sure its the same van the damage on the back.. the paint peeling on the back the wrinkles on the border of the double bunks the color of the outside the only difference is the curtains robyns had none ...brenten
The colours in that third photo of yours, the 1947 van are interesting. It shows how common popular green yellow black and red on a grey background were in the 1940s & 50s Just look through this thread, particularly the first post, after that they appear to have had their day.

Yes Cobber, it was a free account. When writing up the instructions for posting photos, I went back to imageshack & saw that it was no longer free. Thought blow that, I simply won't use it anymore. At that stage, my photos were still there. Now they have all disappeared plus any links I used on here. Hopefully not too many but still a shame. it does make me nervous about photobucket though
WOW ! That is looking great when we look at what you had to start with HERE. Let us know how you go with the stain removal
Thanks Cobber i'm pretty impressed with myself lol i may have not stuck them down with convential tiling stuff and may have used about 10 times more stuff than was needed but the great news is those tiles are going no where - not much luck on the stains and I'm not prepared to risk it with wire wool so I'm going to embrace the stains as part of the vans history! Manxie x
Here's some lino - not in a van, but rather under the carpet in one of our bedrooms due for a reno. we are hoping we can salvage some usable bits. There is newspaper from the 1950s underneath so hopefully some more interesting finds there too and I would guess that would giveaway the lino's age also.
