My great-great grandfather was a T.W. Hughes
from Wigan, and looked a bit like the man on the left.
What year was this taken? He last visited in 1928, when he was an old man.
The cyclist on the left is Owd Tom Hughes , 1866-1950. He founded theAutumn Tints a national cycling club for over 50's. He was the father of Tom Hughes the cycle dealer of Wallgate & Mesnes St.
Teddy Ashton was a noted Lancashire dialect writer a keen cyclist. They cycled to Wembley in August 1924, does anyone know the event thy would be attending?
That trip to Wembley in 1924 would be to the British Empire Ehibition, opened by King George V on St George's Day, 23 April 1924. The British Empire contained 58 countries at that time, and only Gambia and Gibraltar did not take part. It cost £12 million and was the largest exhibition ever staged anywhere in the world with 27 million visitors.
