Publicity Brochure - H.V. McKay Massey Harris, Spark Plugs, 1948 TradeLiterature Reg. No: TL 026741

Produced in 1948, this small but information-rich pamphlet emphasises the post-war benefits of the technical advances introduced during World War II. The cover graphically links a post-war tractor with the locally built Wirraway trainer, both examples of locally designed and built successful technology. The technological aspects of the spark plugs are detailed, as is the pricing structure.
