Bradley John

Year working: Working 1910’s – 1960’s

John Bradley was the coachwork artist designer, best known for his work for the UK branch of Vanden Plas, where he worked 1931 - 1967. Bradley started with Short Brothers in 1915 working in the drawing offices then in the workshops. Details of his work are given in the book referenced below. It would seem that Vanden Plas coachwork drawings were not signed by the artist, hence difficult to determine which drawings were actually his work.
