Manchester’s Motoring Past
By the start of the First World War, Manchester boasted a prosperous motor manufacturing industry with several important firms. These included Ford, who opened their first factory outside of the US at Trafford Park in 1911; the Belsize Motor Company, Manchester’s largest native motorcar manufacturer and Crossley Motors, who produced high-quality motorcars for richer customers.
By the start of the Second World War, there were around 2 million motorcars and half a million commercial vehicles on the roads of Britain. Yet in the year that war broke out, motorcars were no longer produced in Manchester.
Despite the decline in the early 20th Century, several Manchester motor businesses successfully adapted by specialising their products for specific user groups. For example, Crossley Motors supplied an increasing number of buses for North West corporations; Devoid of Trouble (DOT) specialised in popular racing motorcycles; and Metropolitan Vickers were developing electric vehicles for bread or milk delivery.
So, although motor manufacturing in Manchester declined, the motor vehicle had become an important everyday part of people’s lives.
Featured local charity
Had been putting off finding a home for my unused motorbike but a move forced the issue. It wasn't worth a fortune but deserved better than the local scrap yard so tried Giveacar.
They were very helpful and efficient and within a few minutes arrangements were being made. I live in quite a rural area so was impressed that within a couple of days the bike had been collected by a professional recovery service.
Giveacar then provided a receipt to say £120 had been forwarded to my nominated charity. Saved me a lot of time and trouble so everyone's a winner.
Thank you Giveacar.
