F. Whiley’s Motor and Cycle Repairing Depot, 217 Barton Street

The bicycle was a popular form of transport at the beginning of the twentieth century, especially among the working classes.  Although many would travel to work on foot, those in the Barton area who had to travel longer distances would find F. Whiley’s Motor and Cycle Repairing Depot offering “repairs” and “all accessories” for their motors and cycles at the “lowest possible charge”.

Best workmanship

For those who could afford a motorbike, engines of all descriptions could be “thoroughly overhauled and repaired”. Whiley’s offered cylinder grinding and new piston-fitting service all with the best workmanship.
