Mr & Mrs Willis with Growler

A middle class Ilford couple on a cycle journey using a unito coupling to join the bikes together. Both are dressed for the occasion, Mr Willis with a tweed jacket, and his trousers tucked into his socks. Growler, the family pet, is in the attached basket. The picture dates from around 1925, and shows that cycling was still very popular in the post-war period, as it had been since the turn of the 1900's.
