1903-Trouble; 1930-Reliability: The Motor car's wonderful ad
Six photographs illustrating the development of the motor car over a period of 27 years starting with the old Siddeley of 1903 next to its latest descendant of the time, the Armstrong-Siddeley of 1930 (first pic top left). The 1903 car shown here was owned by Mr Lock-King, the owner of Brooklands, and had the distinction of being the first car ever to lap the famous track.
