This fine and rare book covers the extensive history of this important City of London Livery Company from the Grant of its Royal Charter in 1677 to the present day.
It is a fascinating story which describes how the Livery grew in stature in the City as its craftsmen developed their skills and, come the day, were able to transfer their traditional coach building expertise, in the 19th Century, into the new era of horseless carriages and then made the natural transition into building aircraft. This led to the present day and the Company’s deep-rooted links with the modern automotive and aerospace sectors as well as its inextricable connection with those companies still designing and making traditional coaches.
All this and more forms key chapters in this wonderful history of a vibrant Livery Company which was, and continues to be, involved with excellent engineering as well as charitable activities focused on young people.
In approximately 230 pages, including a Foreword by HRH Prince Michael of Kent, the History illustrates the evolution of a dynamic Livery Company that maintains a seamless line to its heritage, its present and its future and never loses sight of its main purpose, which is to be 'An active Livery investing in young people'.
