The full title is SKINNER'S UNION, A history of the Skinner family and the S.U. Company.

A fascinating read. Wolseley were the second car manufacturer to fit SUs as standard equipment, a year after Rover, in 1912. Both manufacturers made the carbs, under licence.

By 1913 Wolseley was the largest car manufacturer in Britain, producing over 3000 vehicles per year.

I have just started reading this book, it looks to be very informative.

Everything you wanted to know about SU carbs, but were afraid to ask!
