R.l. Richardson Mystery

R.l. Richardson

Another mysterie from the 1934 Alpine Trial. A gentleman by the name of R.L. Richardson from the U.K. drove a Railton Terraplane by Berkeley (like the one shown here) and finished to win a Glacier Cup with no penalties. Nothing is known about him. His navigator was a certain Mr. Ranger, initials unknown. I have found a R.L. Richardson who partcipated in the 1927 MCC London to Edinburgh and London to Exeter trials in a Rover 9, but have no idea whether this is the same person. Supposedly he lived in a house named Beggar's Roost, but this is not confirmed. Any information on Mr. Richardson will be greatly appreciated. ( 5000 comp )

Mystery car ?

Phil Macwhirter from Melbourne, Australia writes: "I recently came across this photo on the web whilst researching Calcutta where I have  distant family connection. I am not sure what type of car this is.  Do you know? It does resemble a Railton which I happen to be restoring, but... over to the experts."

Radiator Mascot/Temp. GaugeHi. I wonder if anyone knows what car this sail form mascot with temperature gauge comes from??

The thermometer is in the upright of the sail and is marked cool and normal and can be seen when the sail points to the front of the car.From the tip of the sail to the base is 7cm. 


Thanks Malcolm Callaghan.
