    Nice steady riding with a few stops for drinks/food/toilet you should cover 60/70 miles easily, I usually do around 50 miles for a four and half to five hour ride out, thats only about ten miles an hour,easliy achieved, Rog

    I notice in a lot of these pictures from the forties and fifties and in some cases sixties the "workers" all look thin and tired yet the dignitaries look well fed and healthy and probably never done a days physical work in their lives, looking at Ian's last picture the Raleigh worker is around forty years old yet he looks a lot older than the suits who are all probably late fifties early sixties, about the only time the "worker" had ever seen a cigar would be at christmas time yet the bloke on his right is probably blowing ciger smoke over the poor sod, I'm no communist but can't help but feel for the poor sod stood there wringing his hands and knowing his place in society when all the others have not got a clue what his life is like and the hardships he has to deal with, and are they really interested? perhaps not Rog

    Vanished shops

    I seem to remember on the second floor of Sisson and Parker there was a section where us young boys could re-plenish the used chemicals and glass ware from our chemistry sets, this would be mid sixties,I should imagine these days it would be classed as supplying equipment for use in the illegal drug trade or classed as bomb making equipment,how times have changed Rog
