Auto Review Shelvoke Album

Product Code: AR182
5 reviews |
$6.41

Here we have the story of Shelvoke & Drewry (S&D), a company which found a profitable niche in the commercial vehicle market. This was due initially to the inventive genius of its co-founder James Drewry, who designed the Freighter commercial vehicle, which found favour for municipal bodywork, where S&D became a market leader. We also look at the two firms with which James was associated before he went into partnership with Harry Shelvoke. These two predecessor companies were Drewry and Lacre. In addition, we also take the opportunity to look at some other companies involved with municipal vehicles; our coverage is by no means exhaustive, and could never be, in our modest number of pages. These vehicle types, by various manufacturers, include Refuse Collection Vehicles (RCVs), trade waste disposal vehicles (aka dustcarts), road sweeper-sprinklers (aka water carts) and gully cleaners, as well as the similar cesspit emptiers. 

Note: due to a printing error, the 'Shelvoke Album' title is blocked-out on the spine of this publication.

    Auto Review No.182 Shelvoke Album and other municipals

    I am hesitant to review this book. As a former Shelvoke & Drewry apprentice and for the last twenty years the secretary of the Shelvoke & Drewry Enthusiasts’ Club (see www,shelvoke-drewry.co.uk ) I know more about the company than the average reader of this book. The author describes the book as a monograph and I was unfamiliar with the format of just 30 pages of a small font size text and no paragraph gaps. It certainly was an ambitious project to cover S&D, the Drewry Car Co, Lacre, other Refuse Collection Vehicle manufacturers and gully emptiers and street sweepers all in one slim volume. I found far too many factual errors in the book along with a failure to proof read the text. A much better coverage of Shelvoke & Drewry was given in a book published in 2021 which is only slightly more expensive. From Oxford’s involvement I feel that the description of the product should describe it as a monograph and explain that it is just 30 pages. The many photographs are also in a very small format which will disappoint many readers, I feel sure. But it is a comprehensive introduction to the subjects the author tried to cover. Brian. NOTE:- I didn't want to choose eitht 'Yes' or 'No' in the question below.
