Friday Flashback.

This is a picture of my Uncle Frank - my father's elder brother.  He is proudly posed with his bike..which has solid tyres, no mudguards and only a front brake.  On the reverse is written "To Daddy from his beloved Child wishing him Many Happy Returns.  Also a safe and quick return.  Taken June 4th 1918."
This must have been sent from my grandmother to my grandfather whilst he served in WW1.  Frank was 5 1/2 years old when this was taken.  More pictures and history of  Frank to come at a later date.


  1. Love the photo. Believe it or not I got some of those old pics from a cousin I never knew who saw my family on, and she sent me pics of my grandmother's sisters, and she didn't have a pic of my gram who was her grandmother's sister. Very cool. Thanks for stopping by, and my No. 1 girl's name is Tricia, and she has given me four grandchildren, and she is also NightOwlmama. Surprise! Have a great day!

  2. wow a bike with solid tyres - Great photo Pat. :)
