THE 6 6 LUXOR GOGGLE.”
The most important part of the personal equipment of a racing motorist is the goggles, and too much precaution cannot be taken in their selection. The most popular type at present used throughout the world is the ” Luxor” goggle, manufactured by E. B. Meyrowitz Ltd., of London, New York and Paris. The goggle was designed after very careful research, and conforms to every requirement of the racing motorist and airman. Incidentally, this goggle has the unique record of having been worn by every champion of both land and air for the past five years. The latest record made with the assistance of the Meyrowitz ” Luxor” goggle is that of M. Keech, who has recently broken the record held by Capt. Malcolm Campbell. Other well-known racing motorists who wear the ” Luxor ” goggle are Major Segrave, Mr. George Duller and others too numerous to mention. The two most popular models of the ” Luxor ” goggle are the No. 4, made with Triplex glass, and the No. 6, which has curved lenses of ordinary glass. These, and a full range of the other models can be seen at either of Messrs. Meyrowitz’s London branches situated at IA, Old Bond Street, and 199, Regent Street, W.I.
