Overview

1904-1905

Period motor trade listings give the manufacturers of this make as Cook and Wade of Cutler's Hall, Sheffield, but current sources credit A Blackburn & Co of Cleckheaton in Yorkshire with having made the sole batch of a dozen Norfolk motorcars. The contemporary motoring press ignores the subject altogether. The single surviving car has a two-cylinder 10hp engine, three-speed gearbox, side-chain final drive and in almost all other respects is a conventional car of its day. Its one distinctive feature is that there is a glass and brass tower on the top of the handsome radiator in which the cooling water can be seen to be circulating when the engine is running.
