A photograph of the Sunbeam 'Silver Bullet', taken by Malindine for the Daily Herald newspaper on 8 January, 1934. In 1930, the 'Silver Bullet' car, driven by Kaye Don, attempted to break the world land speed record at Daytona Beach, Florida. However, despite its streamlined shape and powerful engine, the car only managed a disappointing 190mph. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
