An advertisement that incorporates a drawing of a car in a bushland scene. The trees are depicted with tall pale trunks that stand proud of the foliage. No people are visible so presumably the motorist and any passengers are enjoying the: "healthful charms [of the bush] in the fullest measure." The car is depicted with no identifying logos or emblems, but the shape of the engine front is similar to that of the Model T Ford. Francis Birtles' much publicised overland trips in the Ford helped make it Australia's best-selling car in the 1920s. The text panel includes: Motorists you are masters of distance ...and can reach and partake of the gifts of the bush with ease and comfort. ...To make your trips doubly enjoyable select dependable Dunlop Tyres.
Other Identifiers: Neg. 3599
