Footnotes

  • Cycle agent Henry Garner began dealing in cars from premises in Nantwich, Cheshire, in 1907 and the following year moved the business to the Moseley Motor Works in Birmingham, changing the company name to Henry Garner Ltd. In 1909 he signed an agreement to act as Austin's Midlands agent and by 1914 had become their largest dealership. Adding another string to his bow, in 1915 – following the outbreak of war – he realised there was a growing market for Army lorries and began importing American-built chassis made by Benjamin Gramm and his son Willard of Chillicothe, Ohio, to sell under his own name. The Gramms, who had begun in 1903 building steam cars, supplied chassis to a number of American manufacturers like Lange of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and John North Willys. Benjamin Gramm also designed the Type B Liberty Truck for the US Army.

    In 1917, Garner listed a range of US-built lorries, all with worm final drive, ranging from 28-hp to 50-hp and with carrying capacities from 1.5 to 6 tons. He did not turn to actual manufacture until 1925, when he opened a new factory on Kings Road, Tyseley and began building a lorry of his own design in overtype and standard models that, he claimed, "completely solved the load problem".

    First known owner of this tilted van was H. Yeomans of Four Oaks, in 1925, though the next recorded change of ownership was in 1964, when it was acquired by Ian Edward Curtis of Kirk-Ella, Yorkshire. Two years later, it was bought by William Henry Fenby of Hessle, also in Yorkshire. Michael Banfield acquired this Garner van from David Akehurst of Gillingham, Kent, in July 1983.
