Walter Belgrove, the man with a magic pencil

Donald Healey said that he was “the first real British designer”. This would suffice to define Walter Belgrove. The Triumph myth owns much to the work, imagination and creativity of this artist and designer. Even today we remain captured by the lines of the Triumph that he shaped: suffice it to think of TR2 and TR3, not to say ofth e mythical “Flow-Free” of the ‘30s. Walter Belgrove is one of those figures that, as a Triumph enthusiast, I would like to have met once in my life, but unfortunately the time-machine is not invented yet. But we can luckily know him a bit more closer thanks to our friend Tom Robinson, that I wholeheartedly thanks, that tells us of his meeting with Walter, occurred in the 70s. In this article we tried to tell the works of this great British designer, even if we are fully aware that many aspects should be studied in more depth and clarified. We therefore thanks in advance all those that could provide us with more information on the life and works of Walter Belgrove.
