The rise in availability of cheap plastic materials led to a craze for novelty accessories for the mass-motorist.
This innovative Car Snack Tray could be ‘Fixed or Detached in a Moment’, enabling day tripping motorists to enjoy a cup of tea and sandwich – whatever the weather.
The tray was produced during the 1950s–1960s, when the number of cars on British roads more than doubled, and motoring day trips became an increasingly popular way to spend leisure time.
Such novelty items were the precursor to cup holders and snack trays fitted as standard to the interior of many cars today. Picnicking and snacking goes hand in hand with a day out in the car.
Accessories like the car snack tray led to the inclusion of similar items as standard in motor cars today.
