The Ladies’ Automobile Club of Great Britain and Ireland was first formed in the spring of 1903, chiefly with the idea of enabling ladies interested in automobilism to enjoy the same privileges as the members of the parent Club, the A.C.G.B.I., but with a Club House and organisation of their own.

The Club has a membership of over 300, and its numbers are steadily increasing. The first 300 members were admitted as “founder members” . without entrance fee.

For some months after its inauguration the Club occupied temporary premises at the Hans. Crescent Hotel, but on April 1st of 1904 it moved to permanent head-quarters, a separate Club House in connection with Claridge’s Hotel, in Brook-street.

The Club House consists of two floors, comprising sitting-rooms, bedrooms, dressing-rooms, and a committee-room, reached by a private hall door and staircase in Brook-street. Special terms for Club meals, and for extra bedroom accommodation, in the hotel, have been arranged with the directors, who are sparing no trouble or expense to make the Club House attractive and comfortable.

The Club is affiliated to the A.C.C.B.I., and enjoys all the special touring and other facilities resulting from such affiliation. It has arranged also for special terms for its members from several of the leading garages in the neighbourhood of Claridge’s. Instruction in driving, for members of the Club and their drivers, can be had on special terms from Mr. R. S. Currie, the Club Engineer.

During the winter months lectures are given at the Club on subjects of interest to motorists, while during the summer frequent meets and runs are organised, an annual one of these latter being to wherever the Gordon Bennett Cup Race is run. The Club being the property of a company (registered as the ‘‘ Ladies’ Automobile Club of Great Britain and Ireland, Limited which takes all financial responsibility, members are protected from all liability beyond the amount of their subscriptions.

Ladies wishing to come up for election are invited to write to the Secretary, Ladies’ Automobile Club, Claridge’s Hotel, Brook-street, W.

The Secretary is at the Club daily between 10.30 and 1 o’clock, and will be pleased to give information and to show the Club-rooms to intending candidates.
