While people know the big British manufacturers of old, what is often forgotten is that in the earliest years of car production there were hundreds of small manufacturers who built cars locally.

The Huddersfield connection to Aston Martin is pretty well known bit that was a simple acquisition and later sale by Huddersfield manufacturer David Brown, but the Huddersfield area also had its own car manufacturer (as did many towns and cities of the era).

The company L.S.D. was named after the surnames of the designer, builder and the company accountant Sykes and Dyson) and was based in Mirfield from 1919 to 1926 and built mainly 3 wheeler vehicles. Built to order, they were finely crafted and today considered among th rarest cars in the world. One of these cars is in our local museum in Ravensknowle Park and is in pretty good condition.

It also brings a whole new meaning to going on an LSD trip

MG Stands for its self and not Morris Garages. As CK said "...there was already one Morris Garages, how could there be two?"

I don't see why not, it is listed on a few other sites and is on public display in our local museum.
