Family life: Dad’s Lambretta, This is the One by the Stone Roses and Mum’s Wimbledon sandwiches

I took this photograph in 1962, when we had been out for a ride on my dad’s much loved Lambretta Li Series 1 scooter. I also developed and printed it as film-processing was a hobby of mine at the time. It is a very precious photo as it is the only one I have of Dad with his scooter.

Dad had ridden motorbikes in his youth in Ireland. He had a slight limp and ankle-scarring after an accident on his motorbike. I picture him aged about 14 tearing round the country roads in County Cavan, with no helmet and probably no licence, in the 1930s.
