London, England. 1930s original black and white photograph of Sir Herbert Austin examining his rival, Henry Ford's latest Ford model at an automobile exhibit in London. Back includes a typewritten description taped, as well as a crossed-out 'Associated Press Photo' stamp. Herbert Austin, 1st Baron Austin KBE (8 November 1866 Ð 23 May 1941) was an English automobile designer and builder who founded the Austin Motor Company. For the majority of his career he was known as Sir Herbert Austin, and the Northfield bypass is called "Sir Herbert Austin Way" after him. Austin Motor Company merged with Morris Motors Limited in 1952 in the new holding company British Motor Corporation (BMC) Limited, while keeping its separate identity. The marque Austin was used until 1987. Austin and his company were in competition with Henry Ford and the Ford Motor Company, and this original and unique photograph showcases this rivalry.
