Hi, my brother is Jeff Taylor who was a manager at Lucas's Fradley. I believe he worked at King Street and Solihull as well. Anyone remember him?

I think the B90 designation was used by Lucas Service division for spares.

The "Lucas B90" was the reconditioned spares such as wiper motors, starter motors, dynamos, etc that Joseph Lucas supplied. New items went to the car manufacturers. When a dynamo for instance failed it would be exchanged for a B90 unit which was much cheaper.

A reconditioning plant perhaps, people used to say it was dirty work at the B-90.
In the summer months the workers would rush to the mucky duck , quickly drink a beer then rush back. so not to be late.
