Leaving the factory gates

This picture is part of a campaign to mark the national effort in all fields. The Department of Public Information made a numbered series of photographs showing the rise of the nation. To illustrate the automobile, of course, Renault is chosen, with the view of the bridge from the island Seguin at Billancourt. Two bare chassis of AHS are driven to the next step, geting a cab. On the picture it says: "The chassis leave the factory at a pace of 50 per day."
