After many years of diligent research, Volume II brings the Lanchester story bang up to date.
The book covers the period from 1931 to 1956 and gives all information regarding the Lanchester cars and the Lanchester brothers. It is of A4-size and comprises 316 pages set in 30 chapters. Its comprehensive index also highlights the near-400 high-quality pictures, of which 60% are in colour.
The astonishing legacy of the brothers’ work is explored in rich depth, and the book includes the recollections of many ex-employees at the Lanchester factories alongside details of plans and management techniques and, of course, stories about the Royal Lanchesters.
Most of all, the work highlights the the fact that the Lanchesters have not just provided us with glorious history, their work is still relevant and thriving in both today’s and tomorrow’s worlds; the Legacy of Lanchester lives on.
