Sanders – A Match – The Last Triumph Herald

One of the reasons setting up this site was to try a put names to some of the people that feature in some of the well-known photographs. This particular photo shows the very last Triumph Herald (a 13/60 convertible) coming off the line. The photo is dated 21st May 1971.

Initially General Works Manager, Sanders was appointed Works Director on 1st November 1968. Read more here…
