Sadly I cannot find where I came across this gem, but gem it is. One of those early experiments at creating a car that can drive on water, or is it a boat that can sail on land? This is an American attempt from the twenties or possibly early thirties and I wonder if it worked? I note that the woman has a chauffeur but she has both hands on the wheel, typical! You can bet when the tyre requires changing he does that bit! This idea has proved successful once or twice. A good car that could be used as a boat did succeed to some extent in the sixties but I doubt many were sold. Of course you will recall the DUKW from the second world war. This also came from the States as a vehicle was required to aid transporting troops from ships on to shore quickly. An American engineer took the base of a lorry and added a boat, this became successful and the DUKW transported many men during the war and can still be seen around the coasts occasionally. A DUKW was chosen to land Churchill and all the senior officers on the day the PM was allowed to cross over to France in 1944. One was in use at Portobello Beach in Edinburgh during the fifties to give trippers a short ride on the Firth of Forth, for ten shillings I believe. The price is why we never got on it! Hmmm I wonder if the lassie in that car/boat ever got onto the lake? Did it sink perhaps?
