The text says: 'Wilhelm Horz shows you the Austin 1100 Hydrolastic', with the address of the car showroom in the city of Wiesbaden (today a car repair business). The same poster, with colours and angles hinting at the Union flag, was available for use by other German dealers. The 1100, designed by Alec Issigonis, was launched by the British Motor Corporation in 1962 and made available with the Austin, Morris and other badges. It was a best-seller in the UK. Hydrolastic was the name given to the model's suspension system.
