Norton Motorcycle By Forth Bridge, August 1954

About this memory

Raymond Skene’s Norton motorcycle.

“He was 19 years old and really loved his bike. I was his older sister by two years and loved riding pillion. My hair was long and we didn’t wear helmets then, and there wasn’t much traffic then either, so it was really thrilling speeding along country roads.” – Helen Ewing (née Skene) [2003]

Donor number: 0135-003
