Going through my mum's old photos I found some which are suitable for this weeks Sepia Saturday theme.
The above photo is the prompt for the theme. The photo is titled "What An Amazing Contraption". It provides us with an opportunity to search out photographs featuring all manner of strange or unidentified contraptions. And if you are fresh out of contraptions there is always cars or people sat in ridiculous positions.
My mum and her cousin off on a jaunt in a contraption in the early 1930's.
My dad tinkering with his motorbike with his father's help in the early 1930's.
A generation later my brother is tinkering with a motorbike in the early 1950's. My brother, David, is behind the bike, his friend Mervyn is on the bike.
My mum is having fun on a bike in the early 1930's. She is obviously posing for the photographer and I know she never could drive a car or a bike. (Thinking of you today mum. She passed away on 10 Aug, 99)
A generation later in the early 1960's, I owned a motor scooter, in Papua/ New Guinea. I was on my way to the beach with a towel around my neck.
