Vulcan Car at the Atkinson for Heritage Open Day
September 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join The Atkinson for England’s largest festival of history and culture – the Heritage Open Days.
Vulcan Car – A Talk by Sharon Brown, curator of land transport and industry at National Museums Liverpool will be held at The Atkinson on Wed 18 September 1 – 2pm. Free entry, donations welcome.
Aimed at the professional man who needed a car to drive himself rather than be chauffeur-driven, this Vulcan 15 hp car was built in Crossens near Southport in 1910. The Hinds family from Southport owned the car briefly in the 1950s. They drove to rallies all over the country and as the car doesn’t have windscreen wipers, Mrs Hinds would rub raw potato on the windscreen to stop it smearing.
The magnificant Vulcan Car, on loan from National Museums of Liverpool, will be on display in the foyer at The Atkinson until 1 November.
