Triumph Model H puncture

A couple of great period photos, way better focus and quality than many of the snaps you find from before the war. Unusual subject of a roadside puncture repair too. Back in the twenties with beaded edge tyres and unmade roads punctures would be a regular chore for motorists and cyclists. The machine with the flat is certainly a Triumph Model H from the early twenties, a bit hard to identify the other machine in the head on view, probably a Triumph too.

Great photo of an outing on a pair of flat tankers. Road
condition typical of a minor country road of the period.
