BMOC - the Beginnings....

1932 BMOC thumb

RARE PHOTO sent from Author Bill Snelling (click on above thumbnail for a large version)- "Aurora to Ariel - the Motorcycling Life of J. Graham Oates", taken 1932 British Motorcycle Club. It was confirmed that this is Fraser Street, close to British Cycles - Could that be old Carphead and his buddy Elbow Greifs at the back?

Here is a link to another picture from 1932
