'Transport through my ages''nothing stays, everything goes'

'Licence for a life untitled''Untitled (burning bush)'

1 "The 1926 12/50 Alvis Tourer is the one I took from the Arctic Circle to Persia across the Soviet Union in 1961; I operated three VW campers over thirty years; and I am now reduced - happily - to a Citroen 2CV 6 Special - which has a tow-bar mounted bike-rack. The other image hints at the radio-telephone I had mounted on a tricycle in the early '70s (I've had mobile wireless connections since the '60s!)."
