Lucky escape !

(unknown, April 1916)


At 3.35 p.m. on Sunday 23rd April 1916, a motor cycle with a sidecar, driven by a man from Walthamstow, was driving along North Street towards Market Square.

When opposite the Corn Exchange the sidecar mounted the pavement, upsetting a perambulator and crushing a soldier’s leg against the window of Mr Smith’s Barbers Shop and smashing  the plate glass window.

The soldier’s leg was heavily bruised, but no further injury was sustained.

The police examined the driver’s licence and his details noted. Police did not witness the accident.
