Powster also joined forces with Plan B to create what would become an extremely controversial and powerful promotional campaign, and where else but Studio Three for Powster to bring this campaign to life.
Watch what happened when Powster ‘Tagged London’.

A dozen pre-war Talbot motor cars with a combined age of over 1000 years returned home on Sunday 8th September to where they were made; our building, Ladbroke Hall.
Our building was the first purpose built car factory and showroom in the UK, opening its doors in 1903 and impressively this year we celebrated the centenary of the 100 miles in 1 hour World Record, set in 1913 by a car built right here at Sunbeam’s Ladbroke Hall. Through this achievement the driver Percy Lambert became the fastest man ever over this distance – on land, sea, or air, for which he earned the status of celebrity and national hero.
With people like Winston Churchill using the building as his experimental warfare establishment in WW1, the famous Kings visit in 1918, and the long line of motoring heroes such as Percy Lambert’s achievements, our building’s history has certainly set a high bar for us to aim for.
Studio 1 showed off our photographic services with a modern studio photo-shoot of a 1933 Talbot AV105 Super Speed Brooklands Tourer, produced by Sunbeam and photographed by Mitch Payne.
