SOLID TYRE ERA

 

The era of the solid-tyre vehicle is perhaps the most exciting period of road transport.

It encompasses the development of the motor vehicle from the horse-drawn cart to the Scammell 100-Tonner of 1929.

1900 to 1925 provided the transition from horse and steam to internal combustion and the development and establishment of the motor industry.

Any help from individuals or companies, whether own-account or hire and reward, with unearthing records, photographs, postcards or information regarding this period of lorry and transport development would be much appreciated.
