Report of Problem No. 16
Last month we thought that the Duesenburg was the most difficult of all our puzzles in this series, but no, the photograph in the August issue caught everyone guessing—except one. The only entrant to submit the correct solution was : Mr. Daniel Perkins, 18, Lambert Road, Brixton Hill S.W.2,
to whom we have sent our cheque for one guinea.
The car in the photograph was the 2-litre Bianchi, and was actually depicted at a hill climb in Jersey. It is extraordinary that Brooklands habitués did not recognise the car, for it competed for a whole B.A.R.C. season about 10 years ago. Capt. A. G. Miller was the entrant, we believe.
Mr. Perkins gives the cubic capacity as 20,007 c.c. but as he also calls it a twolitre his mistake is merely a slip of the pen. In any case we only asked for the make of car, and not the engine size.
As a matter ‘of interest, here are ‘ some of the makes suggested by competitors :Arab, Horton-Special, Triumph, Delage, Sunbeam, Talbot, Star, Hillman, Singer and Itala.

Send us your Picture Puzzle!
A prize of half-a-guinea is offered every month for the photograph used in this competition. The picture on this page was submitted by : Mr. John A. Brunyll,
6, Ryll Grove, Exmouth, Devon, to whom we have sent a cheque for that amount. If you have a photograph in your col
lection which you think would puzzle readers, let us have a look at it. It may be worth half-a-guinea ! A modern sportscar taken from an unusual angle, and old sports-car, little known, o+ an old ‘type of racing car, they all offer scope for different puzzles.
Incidentally, photographs submitted must be actual photographic prints, not cuttings from newspapers, from which it is impossible to make printing blocks.
