Calcutta – Spring 1930

This cutting is from the August 1930 edition of The Morris Overseas Mail magazine and shows the comparatively rare sight of a Minor Saloon on the sub-continent. The two brief paragraphs of text accompanying the image tells of Mr Whittacker’s satisfaction with the model and its achievements in Calcutta’s busy traffic. He claims that his Fabric Saloon has a top-speed of 53 mph and regularly achieves 47 mpg. Keeping a fabric skinned car in sub-tropical conditions must surely have taxed those charged with maintaining the integrity of the body. It’s known that in the tip of the North Island in New Zealand birds used the flock beneath the skin of imported Fabric Saloons as nest lining material. Similar issues may have also occurred in India.

Triple M corner no.160

By Triple M corner

The Triple M series of MG’s all belong to a family of models that commenced with the 1929 MG Midget and continued through to the mid-thirties via a long string of four and six cylinder OHC engined cars that forged the marques identity.

Donington Park 12th May 1934: A hectic start to one of the feature races that day showing a solitary Ford Eight Special, driven by T.C. Harrison, leading a smoking pack of six MGs away from the line. The three Midgets with visible competition numbers were driven by; 19 J.R. Grice, 21 W.G. Everitt and 26 P.H. Lim. (LATplate C3411 – courtesy of Motorsport Images)
