On this, and the following page, appear photographs that need some explanation. During the early 1920s, between 1921 and 1926, some experiments were carried out, to test the efficiency of Smith’s Non-Splash Mudguards. Screens were erected at the side of wet muddy roads. Vehicles fitted with normal mudguards of the period were first driven past, badly marking the screen. Then the Dennis lorry, with non-splash mudguards, drove past at the fast speed of 14 miles per hour, throwing up very little dirt.
View towards Kingsway and the original Adur Hotel.
