Published When?

Thank you to Bryan Norfolk, a collector of cigarette and trade cards that feature the Austin Seven motor car of the 1920s/30s, for sending me the photos above.

Brian estimates that this book would have been published around 1926/27.  One of the cars in the book is a Rolls Royce 'New Phantom' that was introduced in 1925.  If you can provide a more accurate date for when this book might have been published, please email me.

Thank you.    -  Peter Stubbs:  January 31, 2009
