The Morris Garage

Photo courtesy of Andrew Gray
Pictured here is the Morris Garage on Longwall Street in Oxford. From this building William Morris sold, repaired and rented automobiles. It is this business that Cecil Kimber managed for Morris and where he had his inspiration to produce Morris automobiles with a more sporting character. However, no MG cars were built here -the first production cars were assembled at a building located at Alfred Lane, also in Oxford.
