My copy of Motor Sport comes by sea mail—hence late.
Re: your article on John Rowley’s 1913 Th. Schneider, it would be interesting to Compare the latter with the rather complete description and photos of the 14-16 Chevaux Th. Schneider in Omitia, No. 430, 28th March, 1914, pages 198 to 202. A striking family resemblance in all departments, notwithstanding the many differences.
As a Franeophile when it comes to vintage motor cars, I muse about the French cars with non-French names. I can think of, Dietrich (German), Hotchkiss (American), Derby (British), Marlborough (British), Rally (British), Rosengart (German), Bugatti (Italian); of course there are many lesser known marques. Where did the Germanic Th. Schneider come from? [“Baladeur” did a “Sideslip” on this some years ago.—Ed.]
