I was reading my collection of the original Dinky Toys Club Newsletters, and I saw something strange with Newsletter No. 3. Here is it:
Do you see what I am referring?
Why of course - all the cars depicted as far as can be identified - ARE ALL BRITISH! Try and do that by taking a photograph from the same location today! :laugh: :laugh:
But hang on - there is also something very strange with the Rover in the foreground.
Yes - Britain's secret invention - a driverless motorcar! Unless my eyes are deceiving me, but I do not think the Rover has a driver, nor do I think the Austin and Morris which leads me to suspect that the photograph has been staged for the benefit of the opening of the new M1 Motorway! Not to mention all the other cars are "driving" too close to each other!
And to think all these years I thought it was a photograph of high-speed traffic on the M1. Yes, I also realize I am being too finicky! ;)
