This tatty old photo could well have spent many years in the wallet belonging to this Lagonda M45's proud owner, judging by its battered condition. Evidently it didn't spend its life hidden away and preserved in a dusty old album that's for sure. The Lagonda's exact identity isn't known, nor is the date of this photograph. The M45 series was introduced in 1934, and featured a 4.5 litre Meadows engine allied to coachwork built by Lagonda themselves. One year after the introduction of the M45, the high-performance Rapide made its debut.
