Ghosts - # 23

Today I found a Richmond street that I never knew existed! And I found a motorcycle shop from the past!! The building appears to date from about 1740, the shop front is late 19th Century. The motorcycle signs are probably pre-1939, and seem to have been there since that time. The shop sells original second hand parts and made-up replica parts for all the great old British motorcycle names. It's obviously an enthusiasts' Mecca and seems to take it's image very seriously.

  1. Hi, just thought I'd add a comment. The Triumph logo is a Thunderbird, and would date from the fifties. Ms Harwood would no doubt be amused that you think she is portraying an 'image' with her shop. It's just a lovely old place that hasn't felt the need to move with the times, long may she stay in business. Oh, and she even uses an old fashioned typewriter... :-)
    Nice pictures, regards, Ivor.
