Photo of Edward, John and George Pearson contributed by Michael Coley-Smith
“I thought you might be interested in this photo that I think my mom got the Black Country Bugle to
send her back in the 1960s. The three young men are the sons of Edward Jewkes Pearson,
one of the sons of John Pearson, an elder brother of George Pearson of Harris & Pearson.
The three young men are Edgar Percy Pearson, Harold Henry Pearson and John Reginald Francis Pearson.
mpossible to say who is who.Likely ca. 1900, Kingswinford. The low bonnet and location of the steering gear beneath the chassis
led the Beaulieu Motor Museum to tentatively identify the vehicle as a Wilson-Pilcher, made in London,
the earliest in 1901. Bought by Armstrong Whitworth in 1904, the company then ceased production.
Who owned the vehicle in the photo is unknown.
John Reginald Francis Pearson was my grandfather - he died in 1914 of tuberculosis.”
