Subject: [CR][CR[ Hobbsand Hetchins Update

Purely from a cyclists observation I would have to say there were far more Hobbs of Barbican frames produced than Hetchins. I have been cycling solo since the age of eight and prior to this either on the back of a tandem or in a sidecar with my cycling parents. My recollections are that Hobbs were far more numerous in numbers than Hetchins. Surely they were the far larger firm. This is why Hobbs was taken over for war production work. Cant quite picture the shop in Tottenham making parts for Lancaster bombers.
