Lord Austin and Lord Nuffield: giants of the British motor industry

Milton Keynes Museum Society

Milton Keynes Museum, McConnell Drive, Wolverton, Milton Keynes, MK12 5EL

Speaker: Julian Hunt
During the first half of the 20th century the British motor industry saw a struggle for supremacy between Herbert Austin and William Morris. Austin designed and built every part of his motor cars at Longbridge, whilst Morris bought in the cheapest components and assembled them at Cowley. The talk will feature the personal rivalry between Austin and Morris and how it produced radically different approaches to car manufacture and marketing.

Non-members are welcome (£2.00). Tea and biscuits served.
