Something New in Motor Coaching

Whilst browsing through some vintage guide books, I came across this curious vintage advertisement. It's advertising something called the "Silent Guide" which boasts itself to be ...

A novel invention coupled with specially prepared itineraries for imparting and retaining information in a particular and pleasing manner about the many places of interest you may either visit or pass en route on your favourite motor coach tours.

I have tried to find some more information about this device, but have not managed to find anything at all. The perfect solution for not wanting to show one's ignorance of not knowing something, whilst at the same time not wanting to ask anyone.

Vintage advertisement, c.1922


More vintage magazines and vintage postcards can be found on my web site


  1. Heh. Sounds like these guys came up with an early version of the GPS, haha!

  2. What a super advert! My father got one of those new GPS devices which is not so silent, and to annoy him I changed the voice so that directions are now spoken by "Sheilah" from down under. What accent did Jackie Boy have?
