I have featured several rear windows stickers in my articles about Standard Triumph car dealers and my latest article features several stickers that are non dealer specific.

Number 34 in my series of articles about Triumph car dealers this is article about Mumfords who had garages in Plymouth, Truro, Exeter, Newton Abbot, Tiverton and Torquay. I believe Mumfords of Newton Abbot was established following the take over of A C Bulpin & Son Ltd who had been a Standard Triumph garage in 1955. I am not sure of the date of the take over.

Do you have any info about Mumfords, Newquay Road, Truro.

Standard Triumph had a factory in New Zealand where they made Triumph cars. To get the cars out to the dealers delivery lorries were used. I have this photo from Andrew Newman on facebook which shows Triumph 2000 MkI's being taken off site by H Boyce & Co Ltd truck.

The first image shows Mk1's on a Boyce transporter. The second image is later and shows Mk2's and Princess cars leaving Nelson.

The 38th article I have written is about Botwoods Ltd a Triumph car dealer based in the east of England. Botwoods was a part of the Mann Egerton group.

Until 1910 the motor car manufacturers Botwood & Egerton ran alongside the carriage-making firm until Egerton left to set up his own business in Northgate (Street) next to the Great White Horse Hotel. The Botwood company became Botwoods Ltd and in the 1920s the Botwood shares were acquired by Mann, Egerton & Co of Norwich.

You can read more on my blog at: http://vitessesteve.blogspot.co.uk/2017 ... h-and.html

Plea for information
If you have any more information or recollections about this garage, photos of window stickers, dealer badges or sill plates etc please let me know. I can be contacted via replies to this post or on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/TriumphCarDealers/
