Books

In the 1920s, Professor A. M. Low DSc, who wrote articles simplifying obscure scientific facts, told us that one day the human race would lose its legs, because it would never need to go out, as it would watch continual TV, and eat food in tablet form. Aldous Huxley forecast `smellies', cinemas in which appropriate scents would waft to the audience in company with the films. The latter has yet to...

Historical series - No 19 and No 20

Two more of those welcome Rolls-Royce historical studies put out by the R-R Heritage Trust and the Sir Henry Royce Memorial Foundation are to hand, for prices which make all other books of similar research value seem astronomically expensive. These little but informative volumes are available for £6.20 and £9.00, respectively, to non-members of the publishing organisations. The first, Historical...

miscellany

The cars of the STD combine have been fully documented, as have the Roesch Talbots and the Rootes Group Sunbeam Talbots, Alpines and Rapiers, except for the 1930s French Talbots. This has now been rectified by a translation by Edward Wilson of M. Rene Bellu's Toutes Les Talbot Des Annees 30, originally for the benefit of members of the STD Register who lacked data on the later cats. Although a...

Slivers of history

I have received from the archives of the Rolls-Royce EC, through the thoughtful General Secretary, Peter Baines, some fascinating slivers of motor racing history. The story of how Sir Henry Royce investigated one of the 1914 GP Mercedes cars during WWI when designing the R-R Eagle aero-engine is well known, although with loose ends that may never be tied up. It is also known that Louis Coatalen...

Out of the past

Back in 1978, at my suggestion, Roger Collings took me on his well-known 1903 Sixty Mercedes for a long run, to personally commemorate the 75th anniversary of Jenatzy having won the Gordon Bennett race in Ireland on a similar motor-car. A short time ago one of our readers, Mr Peter Kelly of Mill Hill, London, sent my account of this memorable day's motoring, on a quite remarkable veteran, to a...
