The Hall Lewis company, that
could date its origins back to 1889, was mainly concerned with
the railway industry and its Park Royal operation proved very
successful by, apart from constructing railway carriages,
providing coachbuilding for both quality cars and passenger
carrying vehicles. However, a decline in the company's railway
interests, along with considerable competition in the
coachbuilding business, forced the Hall Lewis company into
liquidation in 1929.
