boulogne car body help needed

Its putting things in order of use.

Henry's picture shows there are rear damper before boulogne, and they are there but blurred in the last picture.

It seems a strange decision from austin to damper the rear from the beginning, and not the front.

Obviously it was quickly felt they were needed on the front as well for boulogne?

Thanks tony.

Having driven an early 1920s (non-Austin) car with quarter-elliptic rear springs and no dampers all round I can understand it; under normal driving conditions the car was fine, but sharp uphill bends would cause the rear axle to hop, which the rear dampers would control, so I can well  believe they thought - initially - that was all they needed to do.
