When we were young

In the early 1980's whilst browsing in a used book store I came across a little book entitled The MOTORCYCLIST'S POCKET BOOK.
Published in 1954 and costing five shillings the book is full of useful advice on a a range of motorcycling topics from buying a bike to foreign touring.
I have picked out a few of the snippets of from a bygone age.

From the Buying section. Regarding Trailers
From New Machines Currently Available


  From Personal Kit.
