Albion Archive

Library icon Study area icon Visual disability facilities icon Wheelchair access icon

The Albion Archive is based in Biggar, Lanarkshire, Scotland where Thomas Blackwood Murray (co-founder of Albion) originally lived and where he built and tested the first Albion car.

Albion was established in 1899 in Glasgow, the second city of the Empire, already renowned worldwide for its engineering excellence. Albion's motto "Sure As The Sunrise" was adapted into the logo which featured on the radiator and badges of their models for many years and helped to establish their identity wherever they operated throughout the world.
