Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The firm specialised between the wars in Alvis and other quality used cars and was a British Salmson agent. The changed circumstances of the post-war period are reflected in its trade in reconditioned ex-service vehicles, including jeeps, acquired from government surplus sales and resold for commercial use.
