PHOTOGRAPHS: Club adds 50-year-old colour photo to heritage collection

The club has added three new photos to the heritage collection, one of them the earliest we have of the kit in colour and another, a fantastic picture of a TT in the snow on Christmas Day!

They belong to Ian ‘Nuno’ Franklin who was a member between 1963 and 1969 and all three photos are of him in action during that time.

The first photo is of him at the West Suffolk Wheelers 12 Hour Competition, September 1968. The photo is taken about 160miles in of a total of 239. The second photo is taken in 1967 at a 25 mile TT on the Portsmouth Road and the final photo is of Ian on Christmas Day (!) 1967 at the Ealing Manor CC 25mile TT.

Big thanks to Ian for sharing his photo collection with us
