An advertisement for motor tyres that incorporates a photograph of a Vinot et Denigard car on a rough country road. One man sits at the steering wheel while another, dressed in a long coat, stands beside the vehicle. The car's logo is a V in a circle. The car has halted at a gap in a post and rail fence, and in the background can be seen bush terrain. The advertisement's headline caption is: For rough driving - no tyre will give the same wear and satisfaction as Dunlop Motor Tyres. In the early days of the motor car the Dunlop company sponsored motoring contests to demonstrate the new vehicles' reliability and to promote Dunlop tyres for motors. Harry James the advertising manager of Dunlop is known to have participated in many of these trials.
