Saturday saw us visiting the rather good Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry, the purpose of the visit was to see the Turner Prize nominated artist George Shaw exhibition. And I cannot recomend this ehibition enough to any one who likes painting. Afterwards armed with my Camera I went in search of signs and clues to Coventry's Industrial Heritage. http://www.theherbert.org/
This is the James Starley memorial which stands in Warwick Green ( Warwick Row ) Coventry. Starley has been described as the ' Father of the Cycle Industry ' and an inscription on the memorial describes him as the 'Inventor of the Bicycle1870'
He is also credited as the inventor of the chain-drive(open) differential.

Unfortunately I am a little late in updating the vintageshed, What with work and my eldest daughters Wedding taking up a lot of my free time lately, However better late than never, so here are a few photos taken on the Warwickshire Sections Autumn Run. Nice Autumn weather, a wonderful route along some very pretty ( if a little bumpy ) country lanes and a wonderfull mixed bag of vintage and classic machines.
