    The girls are advertising a brand of stockings called "Mannequin nylons" - their advertising slogan, "Legs are lovelier in Mannequin nylons", is on the board behind the girls.

    The Irish-built Shamrock car is particularly rare, with only 8 examples ever fully completed. Rather than being made of "plastic material", it comprised of fibreglass panels.
