The 38th article I have written is about Botwoods Ltd a Triumph car dealer based in the east of England. Botwoods was a part of the Mann Egerton group.

Until 1910 the motor car manufacturers Botwood & Egerton ran alongside the carriage-making firm until Egerton left to set up his own business in Northgate (Street) next to the Great White Horse Hotel. The Botwood company became Botwoods Ltd and in the 1920s the Botwood shares were acquired by Mann, Egerton & Co of Norwich.
