In the Summer of 1953 my father Geoffrey Gander and his friends set off on their annual Motor Cycling holiday around Europe. They took a Brough Superior SS100, Triumph Thunderbird, Triumph T100 and a couple of Sunbeams.
As of June 2015 this web page has now had over 23 million visitors so if you email me sorry if my reply is not immediate as I do get many great emails and like to respond properly. On 27th July I returned them to Motolegands and asked for my money back or a replacment - they refused.
As of 10th October Motolegends have neither replaced the faulty goods or refunded my money.
I have published these pictures as I like them and I hope that anyone interested in bikes of this era will also enjoy them. I have been advised by many people to make the images smaller or at a lower resolution to deter people from pinching them, but I think this will detract from honest peoples enjoyment of the pictures so have left it as is for now. If you want to use an image in the public domain, on a web site or for any commercial purposes then please email me to ask.
The start of the trip at Lympne Airport on a sunny day in July 1953 with a pair of two Bristol Freighters awaiting customers.
They were all smartly dressed bikers and whilst helmets were not required, a jacket and tie certainly was.
Whilst the bikes were swiftly loaded at the English end, it took a while for the French to unload the bikes. Below, my Father stands on the right of this picture, clearly dressed for a motor cycle ride! The aeroplane below is a Miles Aerovan G-AJTC and it was owned at the time by Ladislav Marmol. We know this as Frank Byford has been in touch and back when this picture was taken he worked for Greeves and was riding the prototype Greeves scrambler.
In the year this picture was taken the plane was used to fly Frank and a BSA Goldstar scrambler from Southend to Le Touquet, to take part in a moto-cross event for the benefit of the Paris Surete. All the women are fashionably dressed, the men standing around smoking, the cars and even someone selling ballons. As vehicles appeared and speeds increased the trees had white bands painted around them for safety, but it did not work and most old roadside trees were cut down. A visitor to this web page (Richard Nash - thanks) has been busy and found the exact spot where the above picture was taken. Into Bavaria although I am not sure where, with the Bavarian Alps in the background and naturally they have brewed some tea.
After years of wondering where this is, thanks to people who have emailed me (thanks Ralf, Christian and Eva) that this is Nesselwang. And on past Kufstein and into Kitzbuhel where they seem to have stayed for a few days walking in the mountains with all the walking done wearing a jacket and tie naturally.
No wonder they needed a cup of tea if they had just walked up here to see this view, below. Another picture below of Kitzbuhel with a Policeman passing on his bike and being eyed suspiciously by the man leaning against the car. A horse drawn cart is delivering beer in the background and someone is selling paintings from an old (probably almost new then) truck. There is much going on in this picture, easier to see it all in high resolution, but see what you can spot? My remark about the glacier shrinking seems to be true as Dieter has been in touch with the picture below and to let us know that the glacier is named Pasterz. The Brenner Pass is one of the principal passes of the Alps and will take them from Austria into Italy. The Giovo is very small and twisty and splendid on a bike, except when they did it the road was just dirt and gravel with no safety barriers. The traffic jam has been caused as two coaches have become stuck trying to pass each other. After St Moritz they head past Chur and Frick as they start to head westward and towards home with a stop on The Julier Pass for tea and a picnic. Apart from the earlier puncture this is the only shot of any tinkering with the bikes, they were very reliable.
On a high resolution scan it appears as if Fred has created a funnel from plasticine and is using it to oil his clutch cable, below. You can see the above spot as it is today by clicking on the link here, it has not changed much. Below, after the lovely twisty roads of the previous week, they are back onto the arrow straight French roads and it seems a bit cooler by the riding gear. It must have been tempting to open the bikes up on this staight and maybe they have just stopped for a post speeding smoke or are about to blast off! Richard N has emailed me to tell us that the exact spot of the above picture is 7 rue, Diderot, Langres, France and if you look it up on Google earth on this link you can see it has not changed too much or todays pictures from Google.
Maybe with all of the people visiting this web page we can work out the exact location of every picture and plot out the exact route with all the stops? On the trip he spent £7 and 14 shillings on petrol and 10s on oil and 4s on a headlight bulb. Soon after I published these pictures I had a telephone call from the owner of the SS100 in these pictures!
The next day he rode it round to my house and after tea (its a tradition!) he took me for a ride on it - fantastic! And if anyone who works for the DVLA is reading this page - I would love to know what happened to my dads Thunderbird AHC 650 - when was it last on the road? I have always wondered what a 50's Triumph would be like to ride and as a result of this page a local 50's Thunderbird owner has been in touch with me and in an incredible act of generousity has offered to let me have a ride on his bike so I can experience what my Dad rode! On Saturday afternoon I took a lovely Thunderbird for a spin down some fine English country roads. I am not the only one who has been a bit inspired by these pictures and several 50's Triumphs have been purchased by visitors to this site, they have sent me pictures and I will try and add them. I am also looking for a Moto Reve from c1909 that my Grandfather owned for many years until WW2.
I have been a bit overwhelmed by the interest in these pictures and travels and bikes and as lots of people are asking if and when I can post more pictures and details of the bikes etc I have created this group. If you join it I will email you when I find the time to scan more pictures of other trips and the full logs of the bikes mile by mile, maintenance and what needed fixing etc. I have set it up so only I can post to the group so the only email will be from me about these pictures. I have just started to create a web page about my Grandfathers 1911 Triumph and in the picture below you can see my Grandfather Thomas riding and the little faces in the sidecar are my father Geoffrey and his sister Doris. You can see the web page on the link below and it also has a video of it firing up after many years resting.
Below are the details of my fathers 1950 Thunderbird Triumph taken from Triumph literature of the era. If any one can supply me with period literature for the Brough and Sunbeams I will add them to the page. Remarkably the family of the man who owned Jempsons (Mr Ken Hurrey) and who sold my father his Triumphs have seen this web page and very kindly sent me some pictures of the dealerships that the Triumph would have come from. Below is the workshop at 118 Seaside and left to right we have John Payne, Dave Stretton (they went on to form Eastbourne Motorcycles), possibly John Banks and right front, Mick Richards. The first page of the Thunderbirds record book - 9 shillings and 3 pence for three gallons of petrol!
This is a shot from the 1951 album entitled - Wednesday 18th July 1951 Nearing the top of the Grimsel Pass (7,139ft) Grimsel Hospice on the island in the middle of the lake. As he approached 80 years old he considered giving up biking as his 500cc bike was getting too heavy for him to drag out of the shed, so the solution was to buy him something much lighter for his 80th birthday. His first bike was a small Excelsior Empire and this was parked outside his parent’s house on the morning of September 3rd 1939. He wasted little time upon his return and on 12th December 1946 he bought the first of three brand new Triumphs. On the 22nd July 1950 he bought his second new Triumph a 6T Thunderbird registration AHC 650. By July 1953 it had been on numerous trips into Europe and around the UK and had 25,914 miles on the clock. I have put his album of the 1953 trip here as I like the pictures and have ridden to some of these places myself. The Gander tradition of bike trips continues, you may be pleased to know and last year I rode down to Tuscany and back up into Northern Italy, back through Switzerland and home via France. Below is parked up heading north up the glorious Futa Pass from Florence to Bologna on a very hot day. These are the bikes that did the trip, none of them suitable for Touring, but very enjoyable on a fast twisty road. My one is the 19 year old Ducati on the left and is the one that my dad rode many years ago. It shows two well used Vincents and the single has been crashed in southern France and brought back home lashed to the back of the twin. Following a chat with Vince from the Vincent Owners Club the picture below has much more of a story to it. It makes me realise that only racers of the period wore leathers and boots and everyone else was smartly dressed for their motorcycling. A previous owner of the above Vincent was looking at this web page when he was very surprised and pleased to see a picture of his old bike, he kindly sent me a few more pictures of it and the other Vincent in the background, see below.
So far it has been suggested that this camera is a Ensign Commando or a Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta - any more suggestions? I have been lucky enough to find my fathers Brough and my Grandfathers Triumph - and if you have enjoyed these pages I need your help. Inverters used to be much less efficient than they are now so the losses outweighed the advantages of being able to use low cost lamps, switches and cabling. Solar lighting kits can be either AC or DC or indeed both but it's much easier to integrate a solar lighting kit into your existing mains wiring if you use a good quality inverter. The charge controller in the above diagram has an output specially designed for low current devices like solar lighting and has an integrated button to switch the lighting circuit on or off.

The Made in NY Media Center by IFP opened its doors in October 2013 through a unique partnership between IFP, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and the NYCEDC who are charged with the economic growth of New York City.

This mission is delivered through three main offerings throughout our 20,000 square foot space in DUMBO. The Media Center also produces events, professional development and programs for the public that aim to inspire, educate and provide access to the conversation around the future of Media. The Media Center is unique in its focus in bringing together a community of like-minded entrepreneurs across Media and Technology who support each other and exchange diverse ideas and insights. Moving towards our second anniversary, we have been looking at the highlights of our first. When IFP won the RFP from the City, the choice to place the center at the heart of DUMBO, was always a priority. Every Thursday through October, the Archway under the Manhattan Bridge in DUMBO comes alive with free performances! Live at the Archway – a curated series from the DUMBO Improvement District & The Lighthouse – showcases the best of DUMBO and Brooklyn talent, with music and more under the Archway.

Capoeira Brooklyn, the borough’s only full-time capoeira academy, was founded by Mestre Foca, a native of Brasilia, Brazil. Eugene Tambourine draws on a musician’s background, expressing a deep love of rhythm and melody that spans tempos and genres. It’s rare to define a child as a prodigy, but with the skills of those 3 times his age and a father who is a professional in the field, who taught him since the age of 3, DJ Kai Song has all the attributes of one.
Those who have entered Cuba through Jose Marti International Airport in Havana will know that upon arrival, they are greeted by beautiful video images of Old Havana on TV screens and the sultry voice of Xiomara Laugart singing “Hoy mi Habana”.  And it is no coincidence because Xiomara “La Negra” Laugart is “The Voice of Cuba”. Pianist Axel Tosca Laugart, son of world-famous Cuban musicians Alberto Tosca and Xiomara Laugart, was born in Havana, Cuba in 1985.
Sizzling Ambassadors of Cuban Folklore, Conjunto Guantanamo has arrived with a fresh interpretation of classic Afro-Cuban sounds, uniting the precision and cadence of traditional Afro-Cuban music with the raw energy and edge of New York City’s unique nightlife.
Over ten years and through two award winning albums, Ola Fresca has evolved into a swinging, fearless tropical Latin sound directly from Brooklyn, New York. Born in Costa Rica, Ernesto Palma began dancing at the age of 11, learning Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia and other dance styles.

For over 13 years, Brooklyn based disc jockey Jesse Mann has been igniting dance floors across NYC and the globe with his eclectic and soulful take on dance music.
6 – 8pmThe Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra is a stunning, 11 piece band that plays innovative, astonishing salsa with a new, vibrant aesthetic. An avid record junkie, Keat gets his hands dirty for any good dig he can find, and picks up anything he can nod his head or shuffle his feet to. The JT Wildman Jazz Band is a New York-based band that plays New Orleans-style hot jazz and blues. Joining the JT Wildman band for their Live at the Archway performance is Mary Foster Conklin, a New York-based jazz vocalist who has performed throughout the United States and Canada.
The band’s self-titled album is the second full length album by the five members of Twin Sister, now known as Mr Twin Sister. There was a new depth to the process as well- prior to 2010, when working on their EPs in much the same manner, the band had never before been in a proper studio. We are left with eight songs stretching 38 minutes, something far deeper, darker, and more substantial than anything they have done before.
In March I bought a set of expensive Halvarssons waterproof jacket and trousers from motolegends in Guildford, UK.
I have now been informed that so many modern foreign bikes ridden by smartly dressed English riders would have been quite a sight on Europe's roads. He bought this one on 22nd July 1950 for £219 16 9 and by the day they set off in July 53 it had done 24,900 miles.
At least one of these Sunbeams should still exist as it was owned by my dads pal and Best Man (when he married) - Fred. I have all his pictures from numerous other trips and will try and publish these when I find the time as they are also full of beautiful pictures. The girl in the Brough sidecar looks very fashionably dressed and more fashion shoot than bike ride. The Triumph has a built in front wheel stand so its just a few minutes to get the wheel out.
Any experts in old sunglasses as lots of people are asking me about the ones in the picture below and asking what make they are? Today with global warming it has probably shrunk to the point that it will fit in a nice glass of whisky. Thanks to Atomar in Switzerland, we now know exactly where this picture was taken on Bleicherweg in Zurich.
I tried a few scanners that were hopeless and finally bought a dedicated photo scanner, an Epson V500 Photo. Behind it is my Dads 1950 D1 Bantam that he bought new in 1950 so again 60 years since they were parked up next to each other. The picture below was taken c25 years ago in the UK and the then owner thinks that it may now be in Europe - if anyone knows where it is please do let me know.
The picture below shows Ken (known as HurreyKen in trials circles!) with a fine selection of machinery outside.
My Grandfather starting riding motorcycles at the beginning of century and by 1911 had his own small motorcycle business in Eastbourne.
Immediately after the 11.15am declaration of War he jumped on his bike and rode into Brighton to sign up for the RAF.
He kept very detailed logs of all the bikes with every mile and every adjustment and replacement part is meticulously recorded. He serviced it on July 4th and with all oils changed and 10 shillings spent on a pair of F80 plugs he was ready for another trip into Europe.
It appears that the Shadow that has been crashed and its forks damaged and then the forks of the Comet and the Shadow have been swapped around to keep the outfit running. Clearly they were good quality ones and the people that used them knew what they were doing both in terms of the technical and composition aspects of taking a good photograph. At the top there is a collection of AC bulbs powered by an inverter and below two DC 12v bulbs connected to the output of the solar charge controller. Modern inverters also have a standby sensor circuit which only starts the inverter when there is a demand for some power. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.
Instead of trying to differentiate ourselves with a snappy mission statement or unconventional prose, we decided to focus on making our work amazing, and let it speak for itself.
Our mission is to use design to build recognition, enact change, and create value for the most innovative companies in the world. We capitalized on this growth, partnering with neighborhood companies, talent, consultants and organizations. What was once a boarded up storage bin for the city has become one of the most unique architectural spaces around. Have ideas on how to better utilize the spaces Robert Moses left as he cut a highway through Brooklyn? There’s live painting by some stellar graffiti artists, tons of music and, yes, test drives. His sets combine funk, soul, r&b, disco, house, hip-hop, reggae, world beats and underground dance grooves with rare gems and modern-day bangers. The Brooklyn-based band is led by vocalist Bradley Valentin and guitarist Yohimbe Sampson, with drummer Brian Mason and bassist Daddy Longlegz.
Wonderground gatherings are all about dancing, with classic and rare jams that get things moving. Starting at noon, the artists will have their latest work-in-progress on view, and visitors will have the opportunity to meet them in their studios all weekend. Using sculpture and photography, Giusti captures memories of her life at a remote farmhouse with her late partner Stephen G.
Like large fossils, these hand sculpted monochromatic facades compress time into positive and negative space. Chevrolet will partner with up-and-coming designers to create a capsule collection inspired by Chevrolet. The team behind Light Year is bringing an extra special, two-night projection to the Manhattan Bridge: views.
Through the development and presentation of work from multiple platforms, “Views” explores new ways of “place-making,” while examining continuities and linkages between seemingly disparate periods of engagement. Watch Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 5 transform into a pop-up village built from shipping containers re-purposed into photography exhibition space.
As of January 1, 2015 it is illegal for NYC residents to dispose of their electronics in the regular trash, and residents now face a $100 fine.

With beer, wine and bites from The Lighthouse, it’s the best place to be every Thursday. HMB has shared their creativity with audiences around the United States, South America, and Europe, where they’ve been embraced by a longstanding community of brass bands. His smoothly-blended DJ sets segue from Tito Puente to Tears For Fears when the vibe is right. He loves singing almost as much as he loves DJing and regularly performs with the Grammy-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus (arguably the best youth choir in NYC) at venues such as Carnegie Hall. Her interactive performances are full of vaudeville antics, boast impeccable comedic timing, and have been known to feature up to 75 hula hoops.
She has been representing her country and her people, performing at venues around the globe for over 30 years and with the greatest of international talents. As a young musician in Cuba, Axel performed and ecorded with many renowned musicians, including the great Cuban conductor Miguel Ceruto, Teresa “Tete” Garcia Caturla of the Afro-Cuban All Stars, Sexteto Sendito, and Bobby Carcases, as well as the Roots on their Cuba tour. Since their founding in 2003, Conjunto Guantanamo has become highly visible on the NYC nightlife scene, performing at festivals, dance parties, and events and venues as diverse as The Museum of Modern Art and the grand opening of the IKEA store in RedHook (an all weekend affair!). Seventeen years ago, Nadia decided to pack her suitcase and move from her native Sydney, Australia to New York City to pursue her dream of being a jazz singer in the big apple.
The band is comprised largely of musicians from Trinidad and Tobago, the country that created steel drums, (or “pans”) and produces the vast majority of the world’s best players. While his focus is on house, disco, and funk, he’s always searching for great sounds in every corner of every record shop in the city and the world wide web. An antidote to factional bickering everywhere in the world, Ola Fresca skillfully blends Cuban son, rumba, and timba, and Puerto Rican-style salsa, in a fresh sound that embraces the best of New York’s Latin scene. From their rustic Cuban roots-tinged 2004 debut Ay!
At the age of 16, he was invited to join the National Folklore Dance Company of Costa Rica, thus launching his professional dance career.
Their orientation towards art is that passion and creativity trumps expertise, and that what you have to say is more important than the equipment you own. Cutting his teeth first in the NYC drum & bass scene, Jesse eventually found his way to the deeper side of house, disco, funk, afrobeat, Latin, reggae, and various electronic and bass-fueled rhythms. The group came into being in the summer of the year 2000 in a Brooklyn backyard, founded by members of NYC’s Brazilian based musical phenomena such as Tigresa, Xodo, and Beat the Donkey. With an ever evolving set list that includes covers by many of today’s popular indie bands, the WSO has taken the typical salsa form and infused it with a completely modern identity. Nelson draws inspiration from an eclectic range of artists such as Bjork, Nina Simone, & Joni Mitchell, and her performances aim to promote energetic empowerment for all who attend. His DJ sets are an eclectic blend of musical genres that are funky & soulful, drawn from the fusion of cultures found in the record crates of NYC. With vital, visceral and virtuosic performances from a nine-member company “Eternal Now” is set to an electronic score by Marco Cappelli that reflects the hybrid essentialism fusion of contemporary composition music. WHITE WAVE Dance is one of New York’s most innovative contemporary dance companies and has performed at the New York’s most wanted venues including BAM, Dumbo Dance Festival, New York Summer Stage, Museum of Arts and Design, and internationally at the Hong Kong Academy of Arts, National Theatre of Korea and the National Theatre of Taipei.
The band has performed in venues in and around New York and New England and is currently in residency at Superfine, where it appears monthly. Conklin she has performed in all of New York’s jazz venues, and has a special talent for uncovering lesser known treasures of the Great American Songbook and performing them in nontraditional venues. Following their debut LP, composed largely in a studio, the band returned to the creative process they had employed on their first two EPs- working individually or in small, shifting groups.
Now having spent time in one, they knew better how and when to use it, and were able to combine its benefits with a more methodical songwriting approach for the first time.
I used them for the first time in the rain and after just 15 minutes of riding I was wet in various places. He owned it until he passed away about 10 years ago so hopefully it is surviving somewhere?
My father was 18 when War was declared and having listened to the radio broadcast with his mother, had a cup of tea and then rode his motorcycle down to the recruiting office and signed up for the RAF. What stuck me most was how well it handled, it took no notice of any bumps in the road and tracked like a modern bike! Around 1918 my Grandfather bought a 1911 Triumph and continued to ride it for over 20 years and it still survives today. I have blown up one of the images of one of the cameras below, to see if anyone can identify it? If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. It’s been a great experience to build a business in this neighborhood and to feel some small sense of ownership around its success.
Design can transform through beauty, functionality, community, messaging, interaction, etc.
Moore works to the credo of ‘range is conducive to growth.’ Like many artists of his generation, Matt’s background was in action board sports and the action art of graffiti, each with their core value of speed, do-it-yourself ethic, enthusiasm for new terrain, and sheer fun of collaboration.
These musical visionaries pull freely from rock, soul, world and electronic music to create a driving, genre-defying sound.

Up and coming designers will be mentored by Street Style alum, designer Ron Bass.  In addition, attendees can experience SheaMoisture’s beauty lounge at the Street Style Block Party with trend-setting hair, makeup and skincare consultations via the SheaMoisture mobile beauty pod.
Plus, back by popular demand, PHOTOVILLE is partnering with Brooklyn favorites Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Brewery to create an awesome space where you can eat, drink, and hang out with other photography lovers. In preparation for their performance at the upcoming graduation, DUMBO neighbors Saint Ann’s School‘s high schoolers and sixth graders will join HMB and celebrate with gusto a challenging classical repertoire for brass and percussion under the direction of Stephen Pickering. Batala was started in 1997 in Paris, France by Brazilian percussionist Giba Goncalves; its infectious rhythms and dance has spread to more than thirty cites around the world.
Locally, Foca has spent a decade building a strong and energetic community of students that reflects the rich physical, social, mental, and spiritual elements of capoeira. Kai has also been playing the piano since age 5 and has been taking music production classes since age 7, getting his start at Manhattan DJ school Dubspot.
Miss Saturn has performed her solo outdoor show at the World Busker’s Festival in New Zealand, Coney Island’s amusement parks (Astroland and Luna Park), and at Victorian Gardens in Central Park. In 2005, Axel moved to Las Vegas, where he spent two years performing with “Havana Night.” In 2009, he received a scholarship to finish his bachelor’s degree at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and relocated permanently to NYC.
Led by founder Ulises Beato, along with Pepito Gomez, Sebastian Natal, Carlos Mena, Oscar Onoz and Mauricio Herrera, the band has inspired thousands of New Yorkers and visitors to swivel their hips in the name of Latin passion.
Five pop albums, appearances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, SNL and Good Morning America, and performances with music industry greats including Sting, James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Billy Joel later…she has crammed a lot into her career as a singer.
Jah Pan’s steel drum, calypso musicians and reggae singers have performed all over the world, at events ranging from backyard parties to Presidential receptions, on NBC’s Today Show, at the U.S. They are thoroughly dedicated to undermining the classed based art that dominates our culture! His experiences inspired him to infuse his Latin percussion set with electronic music, and form a unique, first of its kind live show. Today, inspired by the 360 degree musical approach of tastemakers like Gilles Peterson and Mr.
Together with her six piece band, the ensemble conjures up a powerfully emotive live experience which is not easily categorized, but is nonetheless awe inspiring. The band features Ray Scro, an acclaimed reed player in New York jazz circles, and Whit Symmes, on keyboard and vocals. We think of old bikes as being unreliable, but my father and his friends were keen riders and engineers and completed the trip without much more than a puncture. If you own any of these bikes then please do get in touch and I can give you high resolution copies of the pictures. I assume that his friends were in the war and wonder what their banter was as they crossed into Germany.
I rode it round to show Dad my new bike and he wanted a ride and I told him it had a K calibrated speedo, but it started pouring with rain so it was a few days later before he had a go and by then I had put an MPH speedo on it. After the Battle of Britain he was shipped out to Egypt and remained there for the duration. The Shadow is a 1951 model and in the 50's was owned by a Mr Les Sherman of Essex and the Comet is also a 51 model and in the 50's was owned by a Mr T M Simmons also of Essex - so probably friends on a trip together.
A I sometimes drive past Lidcombe Oval along Olympic Drive on the way to my mothers and look across Wyatt Park and see the 2 giant goal posts pointing towards the heavensa€¦.

It must have been quite a combined weight of people and bikes for that Shadow engine to haul.
There’s a lot of design complexity at that intersection and those are the best challenges for us.

As it had been meticulously maintained by an engineer and was in excellent condition my father seemed to get a good price with just £15 depreciation in 29,000 miles. As the miles racked up it had oil changes every 2,000 miles and by December it had clocked 6,000 miles and the head was removed and sent back to Triumph for refurbishment.
In the background is another Vincent KOD 674 - a 1949 C Rapide that was owned by someone in Devon in the 50's and was sold in Bristol in 2008 - so that one still exists. In December, Kai was honored for his contributions by his local community in Brooklyn and named one of the Dumbo Dozen.

Cross-pollinating between disciplines allows him to constantly refresh his perspective and produce unique work. Xiomara has recorded and released three original records, Xiomara (2006), La Voz (2010) and Tears and Rumba, which is due out this summer. My dad carried on riding bikes until he was 87 and then decided he was getting a bit old for bikes and bought himself a sports car. This time my father did the work himself and as he still worked as an Aero engine engineer had access to whatever tools were required. Applying his vision to new surfaces or in collaboration with others always proves his credo.
He replaced the cams, followers, springs, reground the valve seats and decoked it but whilst doing this noticed all was not well with the bottom end. It went back to Triumphs and returned with new main bearings and pistons and then behaved itself as by July 1951 and its first birthday it had done 13,405 miles when it set off for a trip to Switzerland. By September it had 16,995 miles showing and went off to Cornwall for a week’s touring.
At the end of September 51 the magneto failed and the head was off for new inlet valves and guides. Phil told me he often finds himself looking across at the field and goes back to a time when the Magpies ruled this oval. Judging by how my father rode in later life, those 21,707 miles would have been conducted at a spirited pace. We went into the scoreboard building (it has 3 levels), the dressing rooms and into the press area at the top of the grandstand. But to tell you the truth my biggest thrill was to stand on the small hill where Greg and I stood together some 36 years ago.
I had almost forgotten the reason I had come to Lidcombe Oval.Phil knew the answer of coursea€¦.
Phil had the foresight to bring his camera to work the day they brought the famous goal posts down. But as luck would have it I was taken to this secret location and was able to take exclusive pictures of them. The game was Westa€™s Sydney versus Westa€™s Newcastle played on Friday February 12 1971 at Lidcombe Oval.
Johnny Raper was captain coach of Westa€™s Newcastle, which had won the Newcastle Premiership in 1970. Anyway, in the programme Chook says Lidcombe Oval is the best ground he had ever played on.
How about thata€¦plus it also had a story on the a€? highest goal posts in the Southern Hemisphere being in fact, three goal posts of steel construction placed end on enda€?. Phil ita€™s lucky your boss did not get you to dig the posts out of the ground by hand becausea€¦ I quote a€? they are 70 feet high and have been placed in cement 15 feet into the ground!!!!!!!a€?Before you check out the slide show that Greg has put together here is a little Lidcombe Oval history.Unfortunately I know very little about the history of Lidcombe Oval. I know the oval was opened in 1933 because the plaque on the grandstand says so and that Westa€™s had played there long before the official move from Pratten Park to Lidcombe Oval in 1968. In that great book Bucket of Blood, Cloud of Dust, which is the history of Wests from the turn of the century up until about 5 years ago, it states that Wests played a first grade game there as long ago as 1941, because of the work that was happening at Pratten Park. A So if you have photos or stories about the early days of Lidcombe please feel free to email me with your information, it does not have to be about Rugby League e.g. Richie was kind enough to check through old copies of Central Cumberland Annual Cricket reports and it appears that Grade cricket was first played there in the 1932-33 season (perhaps before the grandstand was built) until the 1956 a€“57 season. In the 1955-56 Annual Report a reference to the fact that floodlights were being erected so night football could be played.Richie has some good memories of Lidcombe Oval. He played his second first grade game for Cumberland at Lidcombe in the 1946-47 season, where he scored 40 runs and in 1949 scored 160 n.o.
