Snippets: Curtis's Corsets & Sacred Bark
Leonard Vincent Curtis was the son of H. E Curtis whose company invented the Curtis “Crossed Hands” Corset-Belt. The adverts (dated in the 1930s) state that “if you want to regain youthful lines & charm of appearance. you must test for yourselves the astonishing properties of the “Crossed Hands” Corset-Belt. ” The company also manufactured Children's Trusses. the Maternity Belt & in 1929 H E Curtis had registered the trade mark name “Colonol Liquid Paraffin” which is still sold today in America (the ingredients of which include African Bird Pepper & Cascara Sagrada - translates as “Sacred Bark”). Upon Leonard V. Curtis's death in 1967 the Silver Dawn passed into the hands of one of his close friends & executor – Llewellyn Cyril Rodaway RNVR. In time Llewellyn Rodaway gave SVJ125 to his son who was based in the USA; after Llewellyn Rodaway's death his son remembered the interest that had been shown in SVJ125 by one of his father's friends. he contacted the gentleman concerned who duly purchased the car. thus making the Silver Dawn a 3 family car.
