First, many thanks to John (lifesnapper) for placing his U.A. on yesterday's upload, a gesture that is much appreciated.
Today's shows a detail of an early Model T Ford in a showroom window, Beamish Museum, County Durham. The handsome brass-bound radiator marks it out as pre-1916, when a less distinguished, rounded, enamelled version was substituted.
According to The Veteran Motor Car Pocketbook
(1963), the brass radiator "leaked on the slightest provocation and boiled vigorously on no provocation at all".
