A Rolls Royce

Both Peter Dudgeon and his son William were keen collectors of Georgian furniture and had an eye for fine paintings – particularly city night scenes by John Atkinson Grimshaw. Even before the business started, the family owned the "Best Car in the World" - a Rolls Royce - which throughout World War Two was safely parked in a lock-up garage just outside London. It was then ceremoniously rescued soon after the end of 1945, when three family members opened the lock-up to find her a picture of health and thankfully undamaged!
