    Who is this Company? I have never heard of them and I would like to know who bought them out or when did they blink out of existence?

    Apparently the company was fairly short-lived, from 1921 to 1928, and there are very few Ruggles trucks left in existence:


    It’s a rather handsome industrial building they left in London.

    @DrewE Ah Thank you! I only looked on the wiki and found nothing but I assumed they went under from the great depression or GM bought them out! I love that building too, perfect for displaying steampunk items!

    So the company’s demise predates the movie “Ruggles of Red Gap” too. (…)

    And do think with all that he made trucks too!

    Charles Ruggles the actor is not the same man as the originator of the truck company (one Frank W. Ruggles). Perhaps they were related. Ruggles is not an entirely uncommon last name; there’s a Ruggles Mine in New Hampshire, for example, started by another Ruggles.
