Shares of £1. blue. No 4000. The first road vehicles of Sidney Straker and L.Squire were steam wagons, made from 1901, followed by petrol buses. In 1906 Straker acquired the license to make the Cornilleau-Ste Beuve car from France as the Straker-Squire-C.S.B. The factory was in Bristol. The first of Straker-Squire's own designed cars appeared in 1907. The best-known of pre-World War I Straker-Squires was the 15hp of 1910-4, a sporting 3-litre, 4-cylinder model with an excellent performance. During WWI the company concentratedon building Rolls-Royce Eagle aero-engines. After the War the company moved to a new factory in Edmonton, north London. It produced a new and very modern 6-cylinder, 4-litre car, but few were built. Older and less interesting cars were offered, but sold poorly, and in 1926 the marque disappeared.
