Some of our foreign agents are particularly keen on trade, and visit manufacturers in this country frequently. One of the latest arrivals is Sr. Manuel Canto, the Velocette distributor for Spain and Portugal. Sr. Canto who, incidentally, is Treasurer of the Spanish Automobile Club, anticipates doing a very large business in Velocettes this coming year, and is very keen on the two-stroke model which is in great demand in his territory. Apparently Sr. Canto does not believe in trains, for he has just returned from Birmingham to Spain on an overhead camshaft Velocette combination labelled ” Birmingham—Madrid.” He made quite a business “
do” of his trip, visiting various agents en route and generally boosting trade. Some of our more apathetic agents might well take a leaf from his book.
