So when and where was mine built? Tough call. 1958 most likely, probably in Wolverhampton. In any event, looking at the frame as I have been removing paint (my lord, this enamel had to have been put on with a trowel), the work on the joints of the frame seems pretty remarkable:
Top headtube lug detail. Nice clean edges, not a splash of bronze to be seen.
More of the same at the other end.
My favorite part on the frame, the fluted stay ends.
And a top view.
The brake bridge, nicely molded into the frame
Long slot Campagnolo ends.
Has anybody seen this style of pump peg before? The little squared-off pillow ends are
quite lovely. Finding a pump to fit them is going to be a grind, but I may have one . . .
