Leyland Lorries - A Celebration
Related Product > Leyland Lorries - A Celebration
Arthur Ingram - Editor
The major purpose of this book is to
mark the centenary of one of Britain's
greatest industries in general, and of
one great manufacturer in particular:
Leyland. Additionally, this book
presents, for the first time, a
collection of historic photographs
showing the growth of Leyland's major
product – lorries.

Ancestors of Leyland sold their first
steam vehicle in 1897 and in 1907 that
company acquired another and became
Leyland Motors Limited. The development
of petrol vehicles attracted the
attention of the War Office and through
the declaration of WWI the name Leyland
became synonymous with quality and
longevity.

In the 1920s these machines were of
increasing importance to the rebuild of
Britain and in the 1930s they became
part of the revolution in the road
transport industry, which saw goods and
people being transported in commercial
vehicles rather than by rail. This book
harts the continued development of this
brand through the expansion of their
service vehicles, another World War, a
globalising transport market, and it
all culminates in several pages of
colour photographs of slightly more
modern Leyland designs.

The history of Leyland is magnificent
and though the story of its heavy
haulage vehicles is a lesser-known
subject, this book covers it with
illustrated ease.
