SINCE 1908 the names of Derby and Rolls-Royce have been synonymous. It was in that year the company, formed in 1904, moved from Manchester to Nightingale Road. For almost a century, Rolls-Royce has played a vital role in the working life of this Midlands city. Malcolm Bobbitt's illustrated history of the company's Derby factories offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes insight into the extraordinary engineering achievements that have earned for Rolls-Royce a worldwide reputation for innovation and excellence. His book gives a revealing account of the varying fortunes of the company and a detailed view of the production techniques and processes that have evolved over the years. He also presents an intimate portrait of the local people who have worked at Rolls-Royce, and depended on it for their livelihood, for generations.
