Don’t forget the Fodens
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
