A rare brochure, made to advertise the diversity of the Austin 7 model, was printed by the company in 1926. The Austin 7 was an economy car, produced from 1922 until 1939. The pamphlet showcases the car in different situations, mostly connected with fashionable young couples in modern situations and travelling around the world with the car. The last pages list the successes of the Austin 7 at the races until 1926 and illustrate the mechanical details of the car.
The two contemporary stamps belong to an Austin representatives Nicholls Brothers in Milan.
