Late twenties Jowett touring car.I found these ancient pictures among a collection of old photos, all of which are of a motoring theme. More early photographs featuring cars can be found on the main old car photos section.
The first picture shows a chap dressed for all climatic conditions, leaning on the side of the car, pipe in hand. The photo is a little scratched, but is still of interest I think. A toolbox can be spied on the running board, as can the starting handle protruding from the radiator grille.
I don't know if all Jowetts were so well equipped, or whether this one has been uprated with a few choice accessories. Extra lamps have been fitted to either side of the scuttle, with, I think, a splendid horn of the 'parp parp' variety.
The chunky artillery-type wheels are of a type common to many small cars of the 1920s. Less common is the fitment atop the radiator grille - I can't quite make out whether it is just a large temperature gauge, or some stylish mascot. The tyres on the Jowett look quite muddy, as befits the scenery. Perhaps it has just completed a trial or other competitive event?
