    Pete Ferris - had a workshop near the pub on valley road (2nd Avenue) ? He had a very tricked up Plymouth Super Bee.

    Buses in Nottingham

    My clock-in number was 6017 when I started at TB Works - don't think it ever changed when I flitted from depot to depot.

    There was a fitter at PSD in the early 70's - Jock Skedd (Edward) - don't know if he moved to Bulwell ?

    I remember Roger Holland - Fitter - again, we were at TB Works together in late 60's early 70.s - wonder if he's got any hair left ?

    I remember George Wilshaw - he was a fitters mate at T.B. Works. We spent a lot of weekends together when we were racing sidecars in the 70's - Cadwell,Croft Snetterton etc. - he also raced a 125 for a good few years. Anybody remember the Rippon family - Mick,John and their parents Jack and May , all based at Parliament Street ?

    Motorbikes of old

    Swallow sidecars were in Blackpool, founded by William Walmsley and William Lyons. They finally moved to Coventry and became Jaguar Cars - the rest is history !

    I had a Thames van with a straight 6 Zephyr engine and 4 speed box - the gear change was "challenging" and reverse was on a separate lever behind the driver's seat - didn't half go well though !

    Forgotten memory of Goose Fair

    The Foden is carrying the "Dive Bomber" ride - in it's day it was considered to be the most extreme ride on the fair.

    Forgotten memory of Goose Fair

    Although I was only 6 , I can vividly remember the scary noise of the compressed air being exhausted from Pat Collins' "Tipping Vampire Jets" - it seemed to fill the whole fair (1959)

    Gypsies around Nottinghamshire

    I've got a few LP's called "Backtrack" - "The Who" on one side and "Hendrix" on the other, all on the "Track" label.
