1 have been much enjoying your articles on “Motoring as it was”. My motoring started in the mid 1920s and my parents’ 1923 Standard 14 had no headlamp dipping or even dimming device, and no windscreen-wiper, (until my father fitted a hand operated one). What is more strange is that the 1924 Lanchester 21 which I bought at 1929 still had no dimmer then. I remember fitting a very ineffective resistance coil. It did have a windscreen wiper, which operated from the carburetter. On one occasion, a mysterious loss of engine power was traced by the late Eric Fernihough (who was a friend and neighbour) to a hole in the suction-pipe!
I look forward to a cpntinuance of your articles.
