Coventry history

The motor, motor components and engineering industries in Coventry are detailed in the Register of Business Records of Coventry and Related Areas, published recently by the Lanchester Polytechnic, Coventry. This first catalogue of surviving English industrial archives is the work of Mrs. Joan Lane, MA, research fellow in the Lanchester's department of Politics and History. This "tool for historians" lists and describes the archives material available about Coventry firms, with brief histories of each. It is available for £3, plus 70, postage, from the Polytechnic
