Mr. G. R. DOYLE, in "The World's Automobiles," gives the date of the birth of the Iris as 1905. How the name Iris came to be adopted for the cars built by the firm of Legros and Knowles Ltd. I do not know, but the first two cars built were certainly anything but Iris-like.
Perhaps before going further a few words concerning the founders of the firm may not come amiss.
