EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from November 1973, we witness a significant moment in history as Mr Geoffrey Rippon, the Minister of the Environment, arrives at Downing Street in his groundbreaking new electric-powered mini.

As Mr Rippon steps out of his chauffeur-driven mini traveller, one cannot help but admire the forward-thinking nature of this invention. This electric car represents a remarkable feat of engineering and showcases how science can revolutionize our daily lives. Interestingly, Mrs Thatcher, who had just arrived in her luxurious limousine, pauses for a moment to observe this novel mode of transportation. Perhaps she too recognizes its potential impact on motoring and industry. The photograph serves as a testament to both Mr Rippon's dedication to environmental issues and his desire to lead by example.
