The old delivery bike

Taken at Beamish Museum. Beamish, The North of England Open Air Museum is an open-air museum located at Beamish, near the town of Stanley, County Durham, England. The museum's guiding principle is to preserve an example of everyday life in urban and rural North East England at the climax of industrialisation in the early 20th century. Much of the restoration and interpretation is specific to the late Victorian and Edwardian eras, together with portions of countryside under the influence of industrial revolution in 1825. On its 300 acres (120 ha) estate it utilises a mixture of translocated, original and replica buildings; a huge collection of artefacts, working vehicles and equipment; as well as livestock and costumed interpreters.

Hi Geneviève, Glad you liked this photo, I did quite a bit of processing in Lightroom to give it an 'antique' look. Merry Christmas and very Happy New Year to you too! Look forward to seeing you add to your gallery in 2013. Regards Stuart

Very authentic imagery Stuart.

The only clue that this photo is of the current era would be the chain and padlock..

There was very little street cred in stealing one of these so they were highly unlikely to get nicked! Who in their right mind would ride a Co-op bike :))

Of course, I like it!
