London floods of 1964

My father passed away recently and in going through his effects I came across this image of a BSA Bantam. It looks like the bike is a Post Office BSA Bantam, at best guess the year is 1964 as this roughly corresponds to when he was living in London and there was flooding in South East London nearby where he was living.

Post Office Bantam negotiated floodwater.

  1. An interesting photo, full of stiff upper lips (one lady is smiling) on what must have been a miserable day. Your father, Peter Miller, is a great loss. I have his book "Royal Enfield, The Early History, 1851-1930" and refer to it often. He was kind enough to answer some historical questions about Royal Enfields for me. I will miss his cheerful attitude.
