John Morris advert Salford/Manchester
from the collection of the Bishopsgate library London and used with permission. I guess this date from late nineteenth century, or early twentieth. John Morris remained important fire engineers and bodybuilders up to the 1960s being agent for Magirus turntable ladders. J Morris built their last chassis in 1922/3 according to Grace's Guide. They supplied a turntable on their own J Morris chassis to West Ham FB about this time.
