ORIGNS OF THE HUMBER MOTOR CARS: In order to trace the development of the Humber motor car it is necessary to go back to the 1887 when Thomas Humber formed a partnership with the prominent 19th century financier, Harry j. Lawson. In subsequent year Lawson appears to have largely taken over day-to-day running of the Humber compony, and it was under his auspices that the first moves towards motor car production were made.
Lawson had himself begun his working life as a cycle maker, but quickly recognized the potential of motor vehicles
He had set up the British Motor Syndicate with the aim of buying up as many existing and future patents as possible relating to motor manufacturing - both in this country and, to a lesser extent, abroad. Patented innovations concerning the new 'science' of motor engineering were numerous at this time, and it was the British Motor Syndicates desire to gain a monopoly in what Lawson saw as the next big growth industry.
