Nice photo, is the bike a Veluocette, or am I thinking about another type, also the spelling is probably wrong.


Comment by Anne on 4th September 2014 at 10:20
Looks more like an early Triumph.
Nicely composed picture.


Comment by A.W. on 4th September 2014 at 10:29
vehicles had class in those days.


Comment by Gerald Pilkington (canada) on 4th September 2014 at 11:58
Perfect combo


Comment by Brian B on 4th September 2014 at 19:17
With that tank design and badge it must be a Triumph.Tick and a star Anne!!!


Comment by Neil Rigby on 4th September 2014 at 20:29
1921 Triumph 500cc


Comment by Colin Harlow on 4th September 2014 at 21:52
Looks like a type A Triumph motorcycle around 1914.
And also, looks like Austin Westminster, 1930s maybe.
Well done Brian.


Comment by Phil Taylor on 4th September 2014 at 23:20
A nice Austin Berkeley, 1933 with a 1.9 litre petrol engine.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 5th September 2014 at 13:15
Good picture brian and the park looks good too.


Comment by Fred on 5th September 2014 at 17:53
Lack of comment shows who cares? Just an observation . Sadly, those wonderful days are gone..


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 6th September 2014 at 20:55
Don`t think it`s a case of "nobody cares"Fred., We all have our own interests but I do agree with you that the" wonderful" days have gone but we still keep memories of those days whatever they were.


Comment by Fred on 7th September 2014 at 00:51
Absolutely Jean.


Comment by Garry on 7th September 2014 at 20:34
Lack of interest, rubbish fred. So far there's 1,195 views. Only Colin has got the bike and car right...most people don't know what they are. Those days have NOT gone.


Comment by Linda Shaw on 8th September 2014 at 08:34
Wonderful days? Hardly anyone could afford a car. Where i lived we had one toilet between 5 families. The house was infested with cockroaches. Despite everything mother did to try and keep it clean, it was impossible as it was a slum that should have been demolished a hundred years earlier.That situation was the same for thousands in Wigan. Please...throw away your rose coloured spectacles.


Comment by Fred on 9th September 2014 at 00:44
Sorry Garry, I said comment, not views. Linda, I hear what you say but those bad times was what brought people together. We had nowt but my also neighbour had nowt. It taught me values and to respect what I have now. Sorry, gone off the picture.


Comment by Garry on 9th September 2014 at 09:39
Fred's not with it.


Comment by Fred on 9th September 2014 at 16:07
Explain please Garry.


Comment by Garry on 9th September 2014 at 18:55
Gone off the picture...you said..why it's full of history.
