Triple M corner no.185

By July 5, 2020Triple 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.

The September 1934 Shelsley Walsh ‘Autumn Hill Climb’ was a damp affair as this re-touched photo of Samuels’s MG Midget testifies. The roosters of spray and the raised brollies held by many spectators in the large crowd are further confirmation if it were needed. Samuels wasn’t among the awards that day.
