Don’t for­get the Fo­dens

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

In the 1 Fe­bru­ary is­sue, The Way We Were men­tions a driver named Ed­win Fo­den, and I couldn’t help won­der­ing if he was re­lated to the founder of Fo­den Trucks of Sand­bach in Cheshire, which is not far from where I live.

I have looked on­line but found no re­la­tion­ship. Fo­den was a big em­ployer in the area and it even­tu­ally be­came ERF, named af­ter Ed­win Richard Fo­den. Any­one vis­it­ing Sand­bach should call at the Old Hall pub and see all the vin­tage Fo­den ad­ver­tis­ing posters on the walls. Gra­ham Si­nagola, North­wich, Cheshire
