Howie`s notes; One advertisement that caught my eye is on page-XII, it is for Eslwick Bicycles produced by The Elswick Cycle Works of Newcastle-On-Tyne. This firm merged with Hopper to become the Elswick-Hopper Company and WCCSC imported several hundred of these 10-speed models in the very early 1960`s. They were beautifully finished. Len Hurst of Hans Ohrt Lightweight Bicycles in Beverly Hills, CA was one of the major customers for these bicycles. Len`s wife, Connie, is the niece of Hans Ohrt.
