Arthur Frost – and Hirohito

This photo shows the visit of the then Crown Prince Hirohito’s visit to the Standard Motor Works in around the early to mid 1920’s*. The smartly uniformed chap saluting (1) the Crown Prince (2) was none other than my grandad Arthur Frost (1900 – 1969) who was the companies Commissionaire. Sir John Black can also been seen in this photograph.
