1912 - 1915
George Barker was a fellmonger, or dealer in skins and hides, and it was in a corner of his doubtless malodorous premises that his son Norman and friend Guy Nanson set up their car business. The first Tiny was a cyclecar powered by an 8hp air-cooled V-twin Jap engine, with 3-speed gearbox and final drive by chains. With a coachbuilt alunimium body, it sold for £102.90. It is uncertain how many Tinys were made altogether. Some sources claim only three, but that would mean only one of each type, which is unlikely given that at least three were made of the first model, one being a delivery van. Certainly output was pretty limited and it did not survive the war.
