Caption on photograph: "The Overlander" The Panhard car fitted with Continental Tyres in which Hon. J.W. Blair made its record motor trip of 3000 miles across Queensland. Two of the tyres shown in the picture have travelled 8000 miles. The portraits are Mr Hall (Mr. Blair's chauffeur) seated in car, and Mr. E.W. Clisby, Queensland representative for Continental Motor Tyres.
Note that there is no hood or windscreen. This Panhard Et Levassor car was manufactured in France. Characteristics include acetylene head lamps and oil side lamps which could point to a 1906 model.
