Minerva Landaulette (Lambert & Butler Motors, 7 of 25)


This is 7 of 25 in the Lambert & Butler Motors Series of Cigarette Cards, issued in 1908. From the back of the card;

"The illustration represents a 28hp Minerva Limousine. These cars have become exceedingly popular in a comparatively short time owing to their sweet running, speed, power and reliability. Their performance in the 1907 Circuit des Ardennes established a record. Out of a field of 23 starters, they were placed first, second and third, covering the distance of 375 miles in 374 minutes - all three cars finishing within 79 seconds of each other"
