EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the year 1906, capturing a moment in time when automobiles were still a novelty. The focal point of the image is a Chenard Walcker motor car, an early model that exudes elegance and sophistication. A man sits comfortably behind the wheel, his posture reflecting both pride and excitement. What strikes us immediately is the absence of lights on this vehicle, except for a prominent spotlight mounted on its bonnet. This peculiar detail highlights how far automotive technology has come since then. It also serves as a reminder of the challenges motorists faced during those early days of motoring. In front of the windscreen lies an intriguing artifact: an Automobile Association badge from 1905. This organization was established with the noble aim of helping motorists avoid speed traps set up by police officers at that time. The presence of this badge suggests that our driver was part of this pioneering movement, seeking support and camaraderie among fellow automobile enthusiasts. Photographed by Alfred Newton and Son in Farnborough Grange, Warwickshire, this image captures not only a specific moment but also represents an era defined by innovation and adventure. Sydney Newton's skillful preservation allows us to appreciate Edwardian transport history through this remarkable snapshot.
