1905 No 2 Aero Special Rudge-Whitworth

 

1905 RUDGE WHITWORTH

 

 

Rudge-Whitworth were rightly proud of their royal connection, which allowed them to display the statement ‘By Special Appointment to His Majesty King Edward and H.R.H The Prince of Wales’ in their adverts and catalogues.

But until I took a close-up photo of the royal coat of arms on the down tube of this 1905 Rudge-Whitworth, I had not appreciated the ornate design of the emblem.
