I(s)OTW no.544

In the main just a single image adorned the cover of The Light Car & Cycle Car (later shortened to the Light Car) magazine throughout the thirties decade. However, many photos of the selected subject vehicle were taken and the rejected shots eventually found their way into the magazine’s archive alongside the chosen image. Here is one such example. The editor wanted a suitable photo for the magazine’s 10th November 1933 edition to commemorate ‘Poppy Day’. He selected this photo of a 1934 Minor Saloon but consigned the people-less photo of the car and war memorial to the archive. (LAT Motor plate 714-10 courtesy of Motorsport Images)
