Electricalities for early cars


A fascinating booklet on the electrical equipment on early cars.


Electricalities for early cars

This is a delightful booklet for any fan of early motoring. We feel this was published in 1917 by the Joseph Lucas company in Birmingham, England. It is full of nice black and white illustrations, small cartoons and fascinating information on a car’s electrical equipment.

This booklet covers the battery, starting, ignition, lamps, wiring and fuses and accessories. It has a nice colour cover. The booklet is grubby from obvious use and has some notes and prices inside the back cover.

A lovely survivor from the early days of the motor car.
