Splendid photo! Another tasty slice of vintage commercial aviation.
I believe that that's a de Havilland DH.91 Albatross over to the left. Very rare aircraft - only seven (total, including prototypes) built. Introduction into service was in October, 1938. Just as all of the HP-42 aircraft had names starting with "H", the seven DH-91s had names starting with "F".
I love the juxtaposition of the biplane HP-42, with the uncowled engines, and all of its struts and wires, against the monoplane Albatross - beautifully streamlined and inline engines.

The overall grainy nature of this photograph is probably why it is so seldom seen... This is the first time I have done. The rarity of it makes up for that grainy nature, at least somewhat.

A rare bird indeed, the triple seven of it's time

Having a monoplane and large biplane in same shot as vintage cars, all going about their daily business so many years ago makes a strong impression. looks about 1935-36
