Post Comtemporary British Review of the Alfa-Romeo 35-50 H.P.

The Automobile Engineer, Volume 12, Number 159, January 1922, Pages 2-6.

First paragraph:

"The 35-50 h.p. chassis forming the subject of the following notes is made in Milan, but in its design it departs considerably from what we in this country have learnt to regard as typical Italian practice. That is to say, that accessibility has not been sacrificed in an endeavour to attain an ultra-clean outline, and apparent simplicity has not been attained by ingeniously hiding parts. On the contrary, ease of inspection, dismantling for repairs or replacement has obviously been given due consideration in the design of the chassis throughout."

Enjoy!

Thank you Maldi for this great article. The kind of detail here reminds me why I stopped reading the modern motoring (lifestyle?) magazines with their half-witted "driving impressions".

This is a great find & I for one would certainly like to see more!

I'll keep searching for, and posting, early articles on Alfa. It is my way of celebrating Alfa's 100th anniversary and honoring its extremely interesting corporate history.

I also posted an article on the 1925 Italian Grand Prix that's a good read:

The Grand Prix Car, Volume One, by Laurence Pomeroy covers in a similar manner a number of pre-war cars.

This includes the Alfa P 3.

In a R&T article (October 1967), Griff Borgeson writes about Pomeroy:

"A genius, a character, a legend in his own time."
