100 images. 100 Lost bicycle shops. 100 years. UK.

C&V's

Thought you may be interested in viewing our flickr group now showing one hundred images
of one hundred lost bicycle shops from England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales.

Through google-maps and the occasional drive by I've discovered and revisited many locations and where possible detailed what the premises are selling today.

Please feel free to add to or identify and keep the group pure with "British Bikes only" please from UK sellers and makers, now defunct.
