Mr A.W. Gill's motor vehicle on a cart after being destroyed by fire. Liskey Hill, Perranporth, Cornwall. June 1906

On Sunday returning from Perranporth just as the car was negotiating Liskey Hill, there was a sudden jerk and then a continuance of motion as if everything was right. But almost immediately Mrs Gill saw flames coming through from the lower part of the car at the bottom of the steering gears. Mr and Mrs Gill and a man who accompanied them were out of the car in time to see the vehicle burst into flames. It was a complete wreck. The fire was apparently caused by a breakage of the supply pipe which caused the petroleum to leak onto the hot exhaust. The car is not covered by insurance. Referenced from the Royal Cornwall Gazette, 28th June 1906, page 8, column 2. Photographer: Arthur Philp
