Biggar Albion Archive
The Biggar Albion Archive and Foundation was formed in 2001 and had its beginnings in Biggar Museum Trust but now operates independently.
It looks after The Albion Club and and 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. Membership is open to all interested in Albions, whether owners or not.

The Albion Museum sits back from North Back Road, Biggar and houses vehicles of Albion Motors, a commercial vehicle manufacturing firm started in 1899. It is staffed by volunteers. Please contact 01899 221497 for information on opening times.
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.
