Pearsons of Liverpool


Recommended Posts

For those of you who do not take the magazine Vintage Roadscene, you may be unaware of the newly published book by them. It is a pictorial record of Pearsons of Liverpool war work assembling vehicles from both Canada and America that were supplied CKD.

It is a large landscape format book and made up mainly of photos of their work. These photos were taken during the war and the quality is superb.

Mine arrived this morning and all I can say is FANTASTIC!!!!

(The publishers can be contacted on 017683 51053 but be quick as the production run is limited to 1500 copies)

Please note this is not intended as an advert as I have no connection with the publishers but believe that members of the forum may be interested in it.

Not very good at reviews!!!

However the book is a landscape A4 production with the photos taken from wartime glass negatives and it tells the story of Pearsons of Liverpool. The pictures in the book are fantastic and cover the whole range of vehicles assembled by the company from kits supplied CKD (completely knocked down) from both America and Canada. These include CMP types, and American vehicles including Autocars, Diamond T and Mack. Trailers and forklifts are also included as are some British vehicles!!The story is completed by a look at the post war activities as suppliers and refurbishers of ex military vehilcles and also their post war coach building activities.


Follows is a synopsis taken from the Transpennine website.
