London Builders at Home - 1950

Posted: Friday 26th June 2020

Author: Peter Underwood

In 1950, seventeen London lightwight bicycle builders combined together to form a chain of cycle exhibitions across the city.  The consortium took out adverts and had editorial in Cycling of 9 November 1950. The ‘At Homes’ ran from 8 – 18 November (excluding Sundays) and they were open from 10am – 8pm each day. The two-page article had details from each of the participants and this gives a good insight into what manufacturers would be building for the new 1951 season. It also gives their addresses.
