As part of our series on Historic Victoria Advertisements, Automobiles & Transportation, 1920-1929, here is a 1926 advertisement for Firestone tires, from Thomas Plimley, Limited, “Broughton Street at Broad”.
Notice at the bottom of the advertisement that “Pneumatics” or air filled tires (what the advertisement refers to as “balloons”), or “Solids” (solid tires with no air inside) were available for cars. The advertisement notes the advantages of air filled tires as additional shock absorbers compared to solid tires.
