Seeing this bike outside a shop in Bloomsbury today reminded me that I saw a man riding one of the same type a couple of weeks ago near the South Bank. He serenely rode up a side road towards Stamford Street. It was a slightly surreal moment. A bit like a scene from Buñuel’s Un Chien Andalou. Seeing a second one I am starting to wonder if they are coming back into fashion. I was disappointed on my recent visit to Guildford Museum that the one that used to be on display throughout my childhood has been consigned to the storeroom for the moment.
