Tony Johns seems to be having problems posting pictures on the Forum, so has asked me to post the following:

This is an early Melbourne-printed brochure before S A Cheney was involved, when Austin Distributors was owned by Ralph Falkiner with showrooms in Queen Street, Melbourne. The brochure was printed to coincide with the 1925 Royal Melbourne Agricultural Show (note the date of Saturday 26th September on the cover). The front cover appears to show a Longbridge-bodied car in standard UK form with scuttle lights, whilst the inner photo depicts a car with locally-built body and the forward-mounted headlights necessary to comply with Australian lighting regulations.

The brochure has been kindly made available by David Zeunert, who has an extensive collection, much of which came from former car salesman, Fred Haynes - a long-serving employee of Austin Distributors. Here are some more of Fred's memorabilia:
