Light Car cover images
The Light Car magazine (The Light Car & Cyclecar until the autumn of 1933) was a hugely successful publication throughout the thirties, but particularly in the years 1930-1934, the period prior to the launch of the Practical Motorist magazine. It’s full page cover photographs regularly featured cars loaned by manufacturers for road tests and launch articles, the black & white imagery contrasting with the magazines colour title-banner, selected from a range of red, orange, green, blue & yellow. The differing colours may have had some significance not apparent to the writer. Here a 1932 Swallow bodied Wolseley Hornet Two-seater has been photographed at the roadside, a short distance from the Cherhill White Horse in a beautiful Wiltshire setting.
