    The Taunus The reason for the Taunus petrol economy-40 m.p.g. at 40 m.p.h. for example-lies in the "centrally-heated" carburettor which means there are no variations in temperature to play havoc with consumption of the four-cylinder 1,698 c.c. engine. Steering column changing is absolutely silent with a normal four-speed box becuase each gear is independently operated. I liked particularly the front seating which can be adjusted for comfort-angle and which enables rear passengers to get in and our the car without the usual performance in a two-door model. I would sum up by saying that the Taunus-a combination of German and American engineering-is a car for the specialist who wants to get away from the stereotyping of a great many British models and who wants for his money some of the refinement of the really high-class car in a lower price range. Marston's work on show An exhibition of art work by F. W. Marston, who illustrates for 'Lincolnshire Life,' will be held at the Museum and Art Gallery, Scunthrope, daily througout October.

Reference Name LL/01/03

The monthly Lincolnshire Life magazine was founded in April, 1961 with the intention of championing the cause of Lincolnshire by recording its history, folklore, culture, personalities, dialect, art, etc.

The magazine has 'thumbnail' sketches of the history of all the county's towns and many of its 700-plus villages, histories of its major houses and castles and profiles of many of its smaller houses, in private occupation. There are accounts of major and minor incidents in the county's history, augmented through the magazine's correspondence columns and details of the lives of many of the county's personalities both past and present.

By recording aspects of the county's life which were happening at the time but which no longer exist, the magazine now has the only written account of some of these customs or events.
