These photos were sent in by the great niece of the rider, who asks if anyone can tell her anything about the machines or location. The earlier machine, LG4760, is registered to Cheshire County Council while the later machine RN9017, which looks like an Endeavour, was registered in Preston. This appears to have been taken in a holiday camp and the rider’s light trousers and his wife’s white shoes suggest that it was ‘posed’! Charlie Sim was a talented musician who played trombone with the Billy Cotton Big Band in the early ’50s. If the pictures ring any bells, or you have the machines in your shed, we’d love to hear from you.
