A German Horch saloon from the 1930s
Something unusual now, in the Germanic shape of a Horch, presumably from the 1930s. Sadly I can't make out any registration number on the car, so whether this was in the UK, or photographed elsewhere, I don't know. It looks like a superb example, with its radiator mascot and other chrome fittings shining nicely with the dark painted coachwork. The spare tyre looks a trifle worn. Also note the twin chrome horns, the auxiliary lamp fitted to this Horch, and the car's unusual windscreen wiper arrangement.
Motorcar production at Horch ended in 1940, by which time the company was part of the Auto-Union empire, which also presided over Audi, DKW, and Wanderer. The Horch shown here has the 4 rings of Auto-Union on its grille, a symbol now more familiar to Audi car owners.
