Cycling through the 1922 Southwell flood

Perhaps the bike was bought from one of those shops?

With the Ovo Tour of Britain cycle race coming through Southwell this year (2018) I thought I'd look into whether Southwell was a popular cycling town around 100 years ago.

I found the following listed in an old Trades Directory for the town.

Can anyone add any more information of photos?


John Alfred LOUGHTON - Whitesmith & Cycle Agent, Market Place and Queen Street

MATHER & Co. - Ironmonger, King Street

Thomas PAGE - Cycle Agent, Westgate
