Ricardo Two Stroke Engine Company

In this postcard of the riverside you can see lettering on the roof of one of the buildings. Cut it out (digitally) then distort it and you can just make out ‘The Two Stroke Engine Co’ This was where Harry Ricardo had his first ‘factory’ making the ‘Dolphin’ car powered by a two stroke engine
