A visitor to the site has kindly sent these lovely period photographs, and wonders if anyone can provide more information. The photograph shows his grandmother, Dorothy Lock with her Douglas motorcycle and was taken in Street, Somerset in, he believes, 1924. Her father, Newman Lock, owned the bicycle and motorcycle business shown in the second picture. Can anyone identify YA 3348 and does it still exist? If you recognise the machine or remember Lock & Sons Garage, please let us know.
