Wow! Fantastic photographic records. Having been a graphic designer I love the 1938 photo of Walter Eden and the derived brochure illustration .

Originals would be good for the FB Archives!

Ken,
The numbers next to pic 6 are model numbers, the 'J' being 1939. In the 30s when the year identifier was added to the frame number the letter was used in addition to the model number as an identifier. It was later dropped and just the model number was stated although the letter remained in the frame number to identify the year. Hence you can get an F45, G45, H45, J45, K45 model Cruiser covering the years 1936-1940. 'I' wasn't used as it could be confused with '1'.

I shall let our Editor have a look in case he wants to use anything in the directory and then they can go to the librarian .
There is also a catalog of metal parts like mudguards and things like carriers that they made.

Old FB factory information

Fantastic collection of photos, sadly so little is known of the Lower Ford Street and other FB factories in Coventry.

More info on the subject here: http://fboc.niceboards.org/t1763-down-memory-lane-lower-ford-street?highlight=memory+lane
