Welcome to the Commercial Motor Archive

We're currently in 'beta' so we'd appreciate your help in testing and improving the site.

COMMERCIAL MOTOR NEEDS YOU

We know this archive isn’t perfect at the moment. But we've got a team of experts to give us a hand - and you're one of them!

Over the past six months we’ve been scanning every page of Commercial Motor right back to 1905, nearly 400,000 pages of the magazine. We’ve then run an automatic text recognition process to 'suck' out the text and present that to the reader. This auto system isn’t perfect, of course, and it needs a bit of help.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

As you go through the pages of the archive, if you spot any glitches or gremlins please hit the “Noticed an error?” button and report the issue. Please don’t expect an immediate change to the error - we’re going to gather all the issues together and prioritise them, fixing the most pressing ones first.

Also, you’ll notice there are a few issues of the magazine missing. These weren’t in the bound volumes and we can only assume no issue was published in those weeks for a variety of reasons. If you do have any of those missing issues – we’ll put a list out on Commercialmotor.com – please get in touch. We'll credit you for your help and there will be a prize or two on offer.

MORE IMPROVEMENTS

As we make the amends, we’ll also be improving the styling of the site as well, so you should see the site evolve as we go.

The Commercial Motor Archive is a mammoth project, but one we’re very excited about.

Thanks again for your help and for joining us on this journey.
