Henry Holden founded the motor car industry in Australia, making 34,000 motor car bodies in 1925 and employing 2600 workers. All the main car manufacturers in Australia used his car bodies. He died in 1926 and his son Edward Holden took over the reins. Eventually in 1948 Australia produced its first 100% Australian made car. Listen again to the story of Henry Holden below.
