This was taken either in the fall of '37 or spring of '38 when my dad (in the sidecar) was 9mo or 18mo. My grandmother would have been blind at this point (afflicted with a degenerative eye disorder) but still liked to bike with my grandad.

Love the side car. Where can I get one? Look at the aero shape.

Awesome, on all accounts. Thanks for sharing a very special memento and piece of family history.

That's awesome, it looks like the sidecar even has suspension. Do you know if it was a one-off made by your grandfather?

That is fantastic. I want one!

+1 Absolutely brilliant.

That thought crossed my mind too. Would you want the side car to be on the smoother traffic side or on the more protected curb side of the tandem?
Safety issue of keeping it on the right important, but mounting it on the drive line side might have complicated attachment.
