The Nineteenth-Century Motorist in the North West

A day school was held at Manchester Metropolitan University on Saturday 7 September 2019 in the old ‘Cornerhouse’ (what used to be Screen 3).

The speakers on the day were:

Craig Horner: Motoring in the North West, c1900: what I think we know

Tom Clarke: Motoring archives in the North West

Josh Butt: The early cycling and motoring industry in the North West

Geoff Timmins: Roads in the North West: experimentation and achievement

John Warburton: A case study of a north-west manufacturer

Nick Clayton: A missed opportunity: How Manchester allowed Coventry to grab the early bicycle industry which of course led to the motor industry

We are hoping to put another day school on, possibly autumn 2020. All news on this will be posted here.
