1932 Daimler Double Six

Here's a motor car! This 1932 Daimler Double Six, with coachwork by Gurney Nutting (after a design by H R Owens), was commissioned by director Herbert Wilcox for his wife Anna Neagle. With its bonnet at eight feet long and the wheel-base of well over twelve feet, it is only just shorter than the Bugatti Royale and the driver sits ten feet away from the front wheels. Only twenty six Double Sixes were ever made and this sports' saloon is probably the only one of its kind in the world. Recently fully restored, it represents about two million pounds' worth of driving pleasure.

A New Book on Kindle

Trethosa Parc Publishing has just published this short, biographical work on Amazon Kindle:

This is about the life and early tragic death of Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales, only legitimate heir to the Prince Regent and the first of several books (on a range of subjects - including more 'Great Lives in Brief'), that are on the starting blocks, awaiting formatting, and which I will announce on this site, as they are published.

I am changing the cover overnight tonight. Well, overnight here that is!
