PEARSONS OF LIVERPOOL
AFTER THE WAR WAS OVER....
Precisely when Pearsons of Liverpool began their business in the motor trade is now lost in the mists of time, but many of their contemporaries began their activities in the period immediately after World War I. This was a time when motor vehicles were more readily available, especially as war surplus supplies allowed numerous robust and well-engineered vehicles into the civilian market.
Whatever the case with Pearson's, they not only made their transition into a motor business, they also turned their operations from horse-drawn vehicles into those powered by internal combustion.
