Morien Hansen, Tommy Price, Jack Wood, Ron Thompson, "Skid" Plevin and Larry Boulton.

It's hard to read my grandad's writing on the back of this photo, but many thanks go to Ade Pavey for the names, who has a very good blog MotoFreako, where he writes about his fascination with the pioneer dirt-track riders of the 1920s and 30s.

Possibly taken in Hamburg looking at the beer jugs & tankards.

Please email me a note if you know any information about this photo.
