Early wheels for Queenslanders

The Canada Cycle and Motor Agency was established by long-term New Farm resident, Alexander Vaughan Dodwell of Moray St. With branches and agencies throughout Queensland and around 200 employees by 1914, CCM was a major Queensland company during 1905–1929.

The business imported early motor cars, trucks and motor cycles, brands of which included Darracq, Renault, Studebaker, Dodge, and Indian.

To tell us about this remarkable enterprise at our September meeting will be Dr Hilary Davies, author and senior heritage officer with the Queensland Government. “CCM’s rapid ascendency crashed with the Great Depression and subsequently its name was almost erased from memory,” she said.

The venue will be the Uniting Church Centre, 52 Merthyr Rd, New Farm, and the meeting is to take place at 2.30pm on Saturday, 25 September 2021. Afternoon tea will be available, and all are welcome. Entry: $5 (members $4).
