Advertisment for Dunlop Rubber Company: Helping the Prince see Australia
|Collections||Dunlop Rubber (Australia) Limited|
An advertisement that incorporates a drawing of a car cavalcade being greeted in a bush setting. Framed by large gum trees is a small crowd waving flags and cloths in front of buildings surrounded by post-and-rail fences. A flag pole flies the Union Jack. The occasion is the visit to Australia of H.R.H. The Prince of Wales. He arrived 26 May 1920 in Melbourne aboard the Renown at the start of a three-month tour. According to the text panel: 'His progress was a triumph - and in no small measure its success was dependent on the automobile, for the car by its use, saved time and enabled many centres to be visited'. The cars depicted include 25.6 h.p. Crossleys shipped from England, the same model as that used by the Royal Air Force in France. In the lower right corner is a drawing of a Dunlop tyre with three plumes, a crown and the motto:'Ich Dien' (German for: 'I serve').
