Typed rough draft of “The financial history of the Lanchester Company” etc.

Scope and Content

Draft of first eight pages of LAN/1/7/25. Describes events from Lanchester's first interest in the internal combustion engine to just prior to the formation of the Lanchester Engine Co. in 1899. Gives figures of expenditure which vary slightly from those given in final version. Designs motor-boat to run on Thames to gain experience, since roads were closed to motor cars for all practical purposes.
