Holdsworth - Aids to Happy Cycling 1949

Holdsworth - Aids to Happy Cycling 1949 front cover main image

If you want to understand the shortages faced by cyclists in 1949, you need to read this booklet, packed with references to a more bountiful pre-war world of plenty and with plucky attempts to recreate it.

The derailleurs feature on page 5 and page 6, just before the CurAcho (pronounced Cure-Ache-O) embrocation.

I am also pleased to see the Primus stove (or its British made derivative) - perfect for a drum up.
