Through the Mists of Time

Andy Miller has lived in Weymouth, Dorset on England’s south coast since 1956 when he was 8 years old. He's owned a couple of motorcycles and more than a few scooters, mopeds and motorized bicycles. He collects old photographs of the area usually found in shoeboxes at estate sales and was nice enough to share some of his treasures featuring motorcycles with HMT. 

As Andy puts it, "It always saddens me when I see a box of old snap-shots at a car boot sale or on a market stall. They are all of someone’s relations and ancestors, but through the mists of time their names get forgotten and no one knows who they are."

Look for more from Andy in the future. Today's feature: British-made Royal Enfields.
