The Hunt Collection J & H McLaren Ltd Company Photographs
Home > The Hunt Collection J & H McLaren Ltd Company Photographs
Tony Hunt & Henry Roskilly
J & H McLaren ceased manufacturing
industrial and marine diesel engine
since 1959 and vacated Airedale Works in
Hunslet Leeds.
This book has been
produced using photographs found in a
box 'The Box' which had been left at
the factory when it closed.

Over several years A O Hunt and Henry
Roskilly who's father had been chief
draftsman at the McLaren Midland
Engineering Works, studied each of the
photographs in detail identifying a
huge amount of information regarding
the products and their locations
throughout the world. With this
information the photographs 'came to
life' and Hunt and Roskilly decided to
publish so that others may have the
opportunity to view them.

Many of the photographs in the book
were taken in the Midland Engine Works
yard by professional photographers for
archive an publicity purposes. Others
were taken by McLaren representatives
when working abroad.

All the photographs in 'The Box' have
been included in the book regardless
of quality from 120 format prints and
negatives to full glass plates. The
books has been printed in full colour
to preserve the character and mellow
tones seen on old photographs.
Information on the backs of the
photographs have been included. These
show drawing office remarks, official
stamps together with sketches of
customer requirements.

All this produced beautiful book full
of wonderful photographs of Steam
Engines, Agricultural Tractors,
Agricultural Machinery and implements
many at work around the world. That
truly show the contribution of McLaren
to worldwide agriculture.
