Pictures – now and the 1920s – re Grade 3 ride 14/10/15

You may recall that this morning we stopped to regroup just after reaching the Bath Road at Hare Hatch, outside this pub:

This is how it looked in the 1920s, a sketch by Charles G Harper in the April 1922 C.T.C. Gazette:

It hasn’t changed that much, but the Bath Road certainly has:

  1. Excellent, Chris. A nice touch to add a bit of history to our efforts on the road. I can’t say I recall the pub, struggling as I was to keep up!

    It would be good to make a habit of this; ie old photos, sketches or stories to give a historical perspective to our rides.

    All best,
    Paul
