Article and images by Marc McInnes
In the vintage years Robinson’s map books were the benchmark for motorists traveling information and guide maps. Their second edition (1924) used a Buick, owned by the author Mr Pearson, in the cover photograph and Sydney Buick dealer, McIntosh & Sons Limited, 20-26 Elizabeth Street, Sydney (and at Lismore) advertised in the publication.
The images are;
