The 1929 - 1932 MG Midget filled many column inches of contemporary motoring newsprint with graphic accounts of the car's road going and sporting prowess. These articles were written in many cases by the well known motoring magazine columnists of the day, including Light Car's Harold Hastings and Autocar's H.S. Linfield. Their items were invariably accompanied by photographs showing the respective cars either covered in mud while climbing one of the famous trial hills of the period, or alternatively pictured careering around Brooklands, Phoenix Park or even the Le Mans racing circuits.
The MG Publicity Department took full advantage of these exploits, proclaiming the car's sporting achievements in their press ads of the day. However the factory 'stills' photographers tended to display the model in calmer settings in order to keep the viewers attention firmly fixed upon the car's inherent sporting lines. The model's clarity of design was clearly apparent from almost any angle from which the photographer cared to point his camera lens, as is evident from the resulting serie of images to be seen below.
The photographs displayed in these galleries have been collected from a wide variety of sources and as a result their image quality is not of a consistent nature. If you have better quality digital images than those seen here and would be prepared to share them with fellow enthusiasts, then please forward them to the PWMN where they will be uploaded to the website and posted to these same galleries.
