Launch of Stathams Bar and Restaurant, Kilkenny,IrelandJohn Ryan has launched his new Statham's Bar and Restaurant in his Pembroke Hotel in Patrick Street, Kilkenny, Ireland. This is built on the site of the old Staham's Garage where the famous Statham Ford was built by George Statham for his salesman M J Hynes to drive. This car and driver combination competed extensively in Prewar Irish races. It's most famous victory was the 1934 Phoenix Park Senior Race. 
The first picture shows George Statham congratulating M J Hynes after the race.
The second picture shows a line up of local enthusiasts' cars to mark the launch of Statham's Bar and Restaurant.

Magasin du Nord Uniform Button

Magasin du Nord Uniform Button

There is no limit to the amazing variety of automobile buttons from the early 20th century. ​ Mysteries about them are limitless 
​as well.
 This early uniform button is was made for Magasin du Nord as the back mark indicates
​.​ This historic Danish department store dates from 1868 to the present day.

The mystery herein is the vehicle depicted on the button. Much searching on my part resulted in naught. I have no idea as to the identity of the vehicle, the year or why is it depicted on this button. Did it grace the uniform of the operator who drove this vehicle for Magasin du Nord
​? ​Was it a massive automotive shuttle for the store? Truly any assistance with its 
history or photographs is most welcomed. Many thanks.
