I will be loading reference photos, downloads from eBay and scans progressively as time allows. I will try to put them in date order with printing dates where these are available

Great archive Graham. viewtopic.php?f=46&t=110831

I have a '62 press ad but I think it's one you have, the same as this one:

Image

Note the white top cooker in the '62 brochure with no large lid on the heat surround, only the half height rear surround instead and only in one of the photos not the other. I have only seen the black top with full sized lid in real life or in other photos. I wonder if it was changed based on early feedback or whether this was just to make the photos look better.

Also single rear cupboard we have discussed before; not on the brochures but seen in [some] 62 buses.

Thanks clymoj...

I am only just starting to compile what I have into the thread. There have been some brochures for sale recently with excellent photos which I have "stolen" with pride..
I also bought two of them!

I am adding Devon Brochures with dates (where they existed printed on the back or where dated by the AA). I am adding commentary and if others know differently please PM me and I will update.
I am attempting to make this a definitive guide to assist others to identify what model an interior came from.
I know I am sad ..... in that I have collected brochures for a while and where there are different dates of printing looked closely at the changes...some have spelling mistakes corrected and some have text revisions and photo changes.
I also have some Factory Press photographs ( pictures & actual hard copies) which I will add
I have a few adverts which are easier to date because they have motor or Autocar dates in the page headings.
I have some reprints from publications which were sent ot by JP White to customers.
I have some electronic copies of extracts from reviews which I will add.

If anyone has any additional brochures for the years loaded so far that I do not included it MAY be that I do not have them and I would be glad to add them...just PM me links and I will reply and add with acknowledgements.
