This is a photo of my mother, her older sister and their parents. I’d say that Grandad was probably very proud of this bike. Unfortunately I wasn’t around to take a ride in it.

    Wow! This is awesome Elaine! True vintage! A fav!

  • Thanks for the fave Ginny. Obviously I didn’t shoot this and the photographer would be long dead, but it’s certainly a classic.
