Description

The ubiquitous Morris Cowley and its more expensive Oxford stablemate were some of the most popular British cars of the 1920s. Their creator, William Morris, was a self-taught mechanic who began his career assembling bicycles in the back garde of his Cowley home. Illustrated with many rare contempoary photographs contributed by the Bullnose Morris Club, this Album explains how the Bullnose helped to make Morris, the future Lord Nuffield, Britain most successful and richester motor manufacturer of the inter-war years.show more
