This Week in 1935: 10-16 March

A few choice news stories that appeared in The Times this week in 1935…

10-16 March:

A week for motor news. On the 10th March an article appeared headlined, ‘Motorist Aged Four.’ In Portsmouth four-year-old Raymond Edmunds was missed by his mother after she left him in a pushcart. He was found later driving a motor car. Then, in France the police prided themselves on having caught alleged tobacco smugglers after a 30 mile pursuit in a police car – a long way from the days of the Bow Street Runners. Also it was in this week that a 30m/p/h speed limit was enforced on roads in built-up areas.
