Coventry's Motorcar Heritage

Coventry, home of the cycle industry, was also to become the birthplace of the motor industry when the Daimler Company became the first in Britain to mass produce cars in the late 1890s. Spearheaded by H.J. Lawson, Coventry soon became a hub of motoring activity, and by the early 1900s was teaming with small and large companies, testing cars, motor-bicycles and tricycles around the local streets and surrounding country lanes.
Many of these companies had previously been established as cycle manufacturers, yet introduced engines to their cycle frames in various forms, as well as producing safer three- and four-wheeled experimental machines. Other companies were established solely as motor manufacturers, many were short-lived, but others would survive and prosper.

This new-found industry soon attracted a new type of worker to Coventry, specialised in mechanical engineering. These men and their families came from all parts of the UK and beyond, and made new lives for themselves in the city. Coventry has been home to well in excess of 100 independent motor manufacturers, but in recent years the city has suffered greatly with the loss of huge companied like Jaguar and Peugeot.

The legacy of many of these historic cars can, however, still be enjoyed through museums and private collections. This outstanding volume is illustrated with 200 archive photographs and ephemera from the collection held at Coventry Transport Museum, and is a valuable record of the motor companies and their machines, as well as the individuals who both founded and worked for these manufacturers.

Fuelling the Motoring Age - 100 Years of British Petrol Stations

Petrol stations have been with us for 100 years. They have been built on countless rural and industrial landscapes, often becoming a linchpin of the communities they serve. Men and women in slightly oily overalls would fill up your car's tank, wipe the windscreen and even check the oil for you.
Football coins, Green Shield Stamps, soup bowls or wine glasses might be handed over to keep your custom - all in the days when a single £1 note was enough to buy hundreds of miles of happy motoring.

This vivid, illustrated history takes the reader on a journey from collecting a tin can at the local ironmonger's to filling up on the forecourt, and on to the possibility of not using petrol at all.

Motorlegenden: James Bond 007 - Ein Bond ist nicht genug

Die Geschichten rund um James Bonds Autos sind noch nicht auserzählt. Nach dem Erfolg des ersten Bandes legt Filmjournalist Siegfried Tesche nach: Der fliegende AMC Matador aus »Der Mann mit dem Goldenen Colt« und der zersägte BMW Z8 aus »Die Welt ist nicht genug« treffen auf weitere berühmte Fahrzeuge von 007.

Erstmals werden auch die Motorräder des Doppel-Null-Agenten in einem Buch gewürdigt. Daneben widmet sich der Autor weiteren heißen Film-Verfolgungsjagden und beleuchtet den Wandel der Frauenrolle in den Bond-Filmen, die nicht nur vom Talent ihrer Darstellerinnen lebt.

England's Motoring Heritage from the Air

This book showcases England's motoring evolution through aerial photography, utilizing the Aerofilms collection, now part of English Heritage and accessible online. Beginning in 1919, the images capture a preserved Edwardian landscape, revealing compact towns and villages with minimal sprawl.

The book illustrates the significant changes over the following decades, highlighting the impact of car availability on urban expansion, suburban development, and road infrastructure. It documents the emergence of new arterial roads, the redevelopment of city centers to accommodate motor traffic, and the proliferation of amenities such as filling stations and roadhouses.

Moreover, it depicts how the car facilitated leisure travel to seaside resorts and attractions, leading to increased congestion by the late 1930s. Additionally, it explores the influence of motor factories and provisions for motorsport on the landscape.

Contents include sections on trams, bus infrastructure, motor vehicle factories, garages, suburban expansion, road development, urban rebuilding, new towns, and the transition to the motorway era.

Worcestershire's Motoring Heritage

Worcestershire can proudly boast that it is the home of the British motor industry. Barely three years after Karl Benz had built the world's first motorcar, the Santler brothers developed their internal combustion engine-powered four wheeler in Malvern.
It was the start of something big, and although the Santler brothers never saw success in the motor industry, the county was the site of some of the biggest motor manufacturers in the UK and still is a major motorsport centre with the hill climb speed trial at Shelsley Walsh being run from 1905 to the present day.

Herbert Austin's factory at Longbridge was in the county until 1911, when the area became part of the city of Birmingham. Worcestershire can still claim a motor industry, with the Morgan still being built in traditional ways by skilled craftsmen in Malvern. The county also has numerous Formula One and motorsport connections.

Lord Nuffield, the founder of Morris and MG, was born plain old William Richard Morris in a terraced house in Worcester. Together with Lord Austin he built up the two largest motor manufacturers in Britain, which combined in the 1950s to become the British Motor Company.
