British Motor Industry Heritage Trust - Nick Baldwin Collection

About the collection

Nick Baldwin's lifelong enthusiasm led him to amass 100,000 photographs and 6000 files of papers on the theme of road transport.

The largest part of the Collection comprises photographs, brochures and newspaper cuttings relating to cars, buses and trucks in the Twentieth Century. It also covers coachbuilding, components, motoring, and vehicle ownership.
