A big thank you to Steve Chambers, who sent in these photo's of his lovely 1955 "Gripmeur" model.

James Fothergill was one of Liverpool's largest and most respected frame makers from the 1930's till the late 1980's. During that period he had a large shop based in Smithdown Road, Liverpool, later moving to Wavertree Road. Before the advent of affordable cars for the general population, Fothergill's were producing a large amount of bicycles during the post-war years- at one time employing up to four frame builders, who also built frames for shop's in the local area.
