MAKERS: New Hudson Cycle Co

Hudson, Edmunds & Co. were brass tube manufacturers who built the ‘Hudson’ bicycle in Sheepcote St., Birmingham prior to 1892. Edward A. Wilson, who worked for them, had also entered into partnership with George Patterson who was making ‘Gem’ cycles. The firm displayed various ‘Hudson’ safety bicycles at the 1891 Stanley Cycle Show.

In 1892 Wilson went to Adelaide with samples of ‘Hudson’ cycles, and in 1893 the firm displayed their ‘Hudson’ cycles at the National Show. They then erected a new four-storey factory close to their old works in Sheepcote St. to enable them to turn out up to 200 machines per week. They became the New Hudson Cycle Mfg. Co. Ltd from January 1894
