Penny Farthing Cyclists, Fowey, Cornwall. August 1992
Approaching the Bodinnick Ferry are these penny farthing cyclists en route for Plymouth to raise funds for Macmillan Nursing Charity. The penny farthing trip was first staged in 1982 when it was started by St Ives solicitor Mike Clough and has become a biennial event. The cyclists stayed in Golant Youth Hostel the previous evening, having peddled from Truro. Their final destination was Brittany, where they raised money for a French cancer charity.

Transport - Romany Waggon - York Museum
Felicity Redfern, 23, assistant at York Museum, is shown by Gipsy caravan painter Jim Berry, 58, how to renovate an 82-year-old Romany waggon, which will become a York Museum exhibit. Jim answered an appeal by the museum curator, Robert Patterson, to restore the caravan so it can be placed outside the Edwardian-style pub in 'Half Moon Court', the street built inside the museum. When the work is completed, Felicity will carry out future repairs to the museum caravan. The exhibit is a known as a top cottage type or 'Leeds Wagon'.
