American La France

Here's one of the cars on the Exchange Station car park in Manchester awaiting the start of the Manchester to Blackpool Veteran and Vintage Car Run in June 1991.
It's a 1916 La France Racer, owned by Clive G Williams of Hyde, Cheshire. and apart from the fact that it has a 15 litre 6-cylinder engine the only information about it in the programme of the event is that it was the car's first Manchester to Blackpool run. La France is best known as a manufacturer of fire engines and other emergency vehicles for over 100 years from the early 20th century, but also built a number of passenger cars in the early years.
