Cann of Camden Town.

From Autocar July 26th 1913 comes this advertisement about Cann of Camden Town.

The original makers of Boat-shaped Bodies.

Check out their telegram address "CANNABLIST, LONDON". Love it.

Cann of Camden Town was also commissioned by build the body of the second Rolls-Royce ever made, a 10HP chassis number 20153 which came off test on 10 October 1904, and was delivered to a Lt Col Moffatt of Tidworth, Wiltshire.

This is how Miller St Camden Town looks today. Not exactly a street you would think the second ever Rolls-Royce body was built in.
