1910 Lanchester Double Landaulet Car

Frederick Willliam Lanchester the "Leonardo" of the Machine Age F.W. Lanchester - the visionary and Renaissance man To say that the Lanchester was different hardly does justice to one of the most remarkable automobiles of the Edwardian Age. Even in 1910, its bug-eyed, hoodless appearance was so unorthodox that the directors of the Lanchester Motor Company in Birmingham, England, feared it would be spurned. Since the turn of the century, the long hood and cowl had enjoyed wide public acceptance in Europe. The Lanchester possessed neither of these features, and thus flew in the face of fashion. But that was nothing new. It's inventor was uninterested in how it looked as long as it satisfied his exacting standards for fleet, dependable transportation with optimum comfort for its riders. Frederick Lanchester was a Renaissance man whose visionary automotive achievements are reflected in many modern cars - seldom with any acknowledgment of their origin. His costly and smooth-running automobiles bore what came to be called the "Lanchester look." Depending on who applied the label, it was either intended to convey contempt or acclaim. F.W. Lanchester - the inventor As a young engineer who specialized in the development of gasoline engines, Lanchester's true interest was mechanical flight. To avoid being branded a lunatic, he wisely applied his considerable genius to an interim problem that he believed would advance the science of aeronautics. In 1895, after two years of careful study and experimentation, he produced the first serviceable four-wheeled gasoline car in England. He did it by studying and then improving upon what had been done on the Continent up to that time. Instead of relying on the components of others, however, he designed and built his [...]

Review In the present war the services of the Flying Corps have, in the main, been confined to scouting and reconnaissance in its various forms, the amount of work which has been done in this direction being very great. According to present reports, a mileage equivalent to many circuits of the globe has already been covered. So far, the casualties have been slight, and the actual risk and danger are considered less than in the other combatant branches of the service. The meaning of this evidently is that the methods of attack on aircraft have not kept [...]
