From first paragraph: All that’s best in Britain An edition of Lilliput magazine2 from precisely the middle of the twentieth century carries an advertisement for the Standard Vanguard saloon. It is part of a series of advertisements featuring 'All that's best in Britain' and features a half-page, low-angle, upper-body colour shot of a piper in semi-profile, in full Highland military dress with bearskin hat and a white cockade; whose bagpipes fill most of the frame. Lit strongly to the face, he is framed against a background of blue sky.
