I’m told that the man in this picture is Harold Harrison. He was the Great Uncle to my Grandfather on my mothers side. He taught my Grandfather how to play the violin when he was 5 years ol. This picture was taken in England around 1922.
What I like most about this picture is the perspective on his face and the vehicle itself. His face radiates self-confidence and I think the vehicle is fantastic.
I scanned this picture from a collection my mother has. I don’t know much about the man but it is by far one of my favourites.
I saw this video on Youtube that somewhat close to what Harold Harrison is on in this picture (Panther Motorcycle 1939 Vintage). It would be interesting to know if this bike survived in my family.
