The Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust has supported the thirteenth edition of 'Aspects of Motoring History' (commonly referred to as 'Aspects'), published by the Society of Automotive Historians in Britain ('SAHB'). This 'Aspects' is the seventh edition of this annual publication to be supported by the Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust. It is free to full-members of the SAHB and a limited number of copies are available directly from the SAHB at Aspects | (

'Aspects', as its name suggests, comprises a selection of articles written by SAHB members (and others) on a variety of aspects of motoring history which do not in themselves merit a book but are worthy of recording and of interest to motoring historians everywhere. Issue 13, edited by Dr Craig Horner, features:

  • From 'new motoring' to the microcar by Michael Worthington-Williams
  • Motoring's bicycling beginnings by Carlton Reid
  • Birth pangs of a breed: early estate cars by Anders Ditlev Clausager
  • The Manchester Automobile Club Reliability Run, 1907-14 by John Archer
  • Early Scottish vehicle licensing by David Hales
  • A unique record: Philip Dawson and the 1905 Herkomer Fahrt by Anders Ditlev Clausager
  • The commercial artwork of Fred Steerwood by Tony Clark

In addition there is an obituary of Malcolm Jeal by Peter Card, supplementary notes on articles in previous editions of "Aspects of Motoring History" as well as Craig's thoughtful editorial.
