  Bob Sankey poses for the photographer on his Triumph combination. Taken on Danny Towey's pen in the Skitters in the spring of 1965. The chimney visible in the distance, would I suspect, have been the one belonging to Record mill in York road, and I'm reasonably confident that the houses are in Old road. RBG archive.

Grubby mitts and an English motorcycle. What next?

A workmate of mine, at the Maypole Colliery, gave me a lift home, in his sidecar, especially after the night shift, from Abram, to Lower Ince, 1952, early 53. It was a most uncomfortable ride, but very convenient, and appreciated.
