A boxed green cast lead ESSOLUBE Six-Wheel Petrol Tender with top=mounted swing arm and feeder pipe, and fitted with black tyres, made for A.J. Holladay's Skybirds range in the 1930s as model number 36, perhaps by either Taylor and Barrett, or by John Hill.


The model just has "SKYBIRD" cast into the underside, so we don't know the identity of the company that would have fabricated it for Holladay.
