This is the third photograph in the group provided by Andy Gates (pa 1159-1163). These cyclists are gathered outside the Gates restaurant – now bearing the Gates name. The former name is still there over the doorway to the right – perhaps this part was still run as a hotel. The former Orbell ownership is just visible on the adjacent glass window. Taken c1905-1912 (Thomas, who probably took the picture, died in 1912.)
