Vespa! - # 09/77

Richmond is much favoured as a scene location by the world's film-makers (close proximity of major studios, a very photogenic environment, and all the skills).
The white Grip's van arrived and started to unload the huge tripods for the cameras, and then the "star prop" arrived - a VESPA SCOOTER, looking absolutely stunning: vintage 1965.
I've loaded the snap full size so that you can click to enlarge and see it in all its glory.


  1. Neat-o! Did you stick around to see how it was used?

  2. Hi Stuart! Difficult times…
    Amazing 1965 Vespa; I remember... Too old... ;)
    It seems sun has made its appearance on the Richmond side. Great shot!

    Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter, now showing Kaunas. Never heard about it? ;) Enjoy and have a great weekend!

  3. I seem to remember vaguely when the registration "A" suffix was a rather innovative thing..... makes this Vespa positively modern and dates me a bit.....

  4. I guess you would like to ride it? I would! :-)
