Arthur Thomas Collier, St Albans Inventor, circa 1900

Reilloc Tyres under Tower Bridge, London
St Albans
A couple of months ago I posted this advertising post card for Reilloc Tyres. Geoff has now provided some additional genealogical information on the inventor, Arthur Thomas Collier who moved to St Albans in 1891/2. Interestingly Arthur had previously been a Congregational Minister, first in Cornwall, and then in Sydney, New South Wales, and it is not clear what led to him giving up the church and becoming an engineer!
