Aspects of Motoring History 8

Author: Edited by Malcolm Jeal
Publisher: Society of Automotive Historians in Britain

The Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust has supported the eighth 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 second 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. See the links button at the top of the page for a link to the SAHB website.

'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 8, edited by Malcolm Jeal, features:

  • The formation and legacy of Britain’s first motor museum, by David Jeremiah
  • Aids to research: the motoring journals, by Michael Worthington-Williams
  • Full colour section: Charron automobiles 1912 10-year anniversary brochure
  • Rivington Pike, an early speed hill-climb, by John Warburton
  • A local garage, by Malcolm Jeal
  • Looking back down the decades, by Jonathan Wood
  • Brakes axles and springs, by Malcolm Jeal

In addition there is Malcolm's thought-provoking foreword, afterwords following up on earlier issues and the Looking backwards and forwards item.
