MG watercolour – “At All Events”
This MG Watercolour depicts the MG cars of Eddie Hall, Cyril Paul, JD Barnes & FS Barnes at the 1932 Royal Automobile Club Tourist Trophy race (Ards TT) – passing by the Grand Stand and below the footbridge that was erected for the event, which carries a huge advertising banner for Pratts – manufacturer of motor oil & spirit of the era!
Hall finished 3rd overall and 1st in his class. The others didn’t fare so well – Cyril Paul suffering big end failure, John Donald Barnes a siezed blower and Frank Stanley Barnes being struck by Brian Lewis’ Talbot at Ballybarnes.
An original MG watercolour painting 16¾ x 13½ inches.
All yours for £750.00!
