Re: Marathon

It was the George-Commercial Inn in Uxbridge, the 1908 Olympic Marathon passed thru here but this is obvously not it! Perhaps you could copy the card to Uxbridge Local History Society or Archives at Hillingdon, it's nearly 20 years since I left there.

Re: Clyno Cars/ Motorcycles / Machine gun outfits

no postcard but many years ago a friend of my bro was clearing an old breakers yard near the M1, my bro asked my advice on how we could make some money and we found the remains of a Clyno car and I said that should be good for spares, we advertised the bits, no takers, Clynos were so badly made that...

Re: Dealers' pencilled marks. Agh!

Not been here for a while but what's the point of a dealer going thru a loada cards pricing them at say £4 and then selling them for 50p, who are they trying to kid? (but I did sell such a one for £36 on e bay!)
