Hi Gang,

Tommy , I here had many pharmacists. An interesting side note is that the original Alex Moulton factory (1962) had a stone carved relief of Tom riding a Moulton on the velodrome. Years later when the operation was sold to Raleigh and the former factory was leased out the stone carving was removed from the building and is now prominent above the archway leading to the new (15th century) factory on Alex Moulton's property.

Classic content indeed.
