W H Brand were a Standard Triumph car dealer based in Spalding and are the feature business in this post.
William Horace Brand, outside his bicycle workshop
W H Brand Ltd is still a family owned business, which was established in 1925 by William Horace Brand.
In 1956, W H Brand moved into car sales on the site it still occupies today. We wonder if the J40 pedal car is still there
The garage is based at 77 Broadgate, Whaplode Drove, Spalding PE12 0TN.
Skip forward mere 18 years, and cars look completely different. It’s 1st August, 1983 – A-Day. A row of sequentially-registered Triumph Acclaims await their new owners
More recently the business took on the MG brand
