H J Lawson

by Lee Hitchin 11 April 2007

Dear Sir/Madam, around 1874/6 Henry John Lawson, better known as Harry and founder of the car industry, was resident in Brighton and making bicycles, one having the nickname ‘Sussex Dwarf’ because of the small wheels. Have you any information on this man while he was in your town? Your help would be most welcome. Regards, Lee
