Horsman’s photo evoked some great memories

It was good to see Bruce Preston’s photo of Horsman’s of Liverpool in the last issue.

I worked in the workshop there for a year or so in 1970/71.

One fifth deposit and three years to pay – those were the days!

The workshop foreman was Ted Gatward and the Phil Read look-alike was Dave Lodge, with Brodie ever the English gent. Good memories!
