  1. What a wonderful picture! We took Yarmouth over the Pennines in '83, and had the pleasure of meeting Joe Bridges at Skipton. He took quite a shine to us for some reason, and invited us back to his place for tea. Met his wife, and heard a whole list of tales, always coming back to his 52 hour run from Liverpool to Leeds - horse drawn. Smashing bloke. As we stayed in Skipton a couple of weeks, my nursing trained/Home Help wife was able to help his wife out in small ways. Made us a pocket sized Monkey's Fist, and a Turks Head fender for the stem post. and told us to paint the fenders with white paint - "always looked dapper, and made 'em last."
