Triumph Marketing

This is a slick piece of marketing currently on the main page of Sturgess Cycle Motorsports since 1910. The business has been around for 100 years.

Nana was a motor cycle stunt driver starting at age 16 for Sturgess. Later on she married and she and my Grandad sold it to pay for the hospital bill (and Nana rode it into her 8th month) when they went to have their only child, my mother. She did the books for the business awhile.

One of the diaries (1940) my Nana kept came into my hands from my Mum so I’ve been putting a day of each month up, so twelve at a time whenever I get the chance. There’s much mentioned about “Dad” and “the store” and “Ted” (Nana’s brother) who¬† raced.
