The first British Motor Show organised by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) was held at Crystal Palace, London, from 30 January to 7 February. The show attracted over 10,000 visitors – a remarkable figure given that there were only 8,000 private cars on the road at the time! After the 1903 event it moved to Olympia in London, where it was held for the next 32 years before moving to nearby Earls Court.
