Earls Court..."THE" Motorcycle show 1930-1980s....

The Motorcycle trade in the UK held motorcycle shows annually, with the exception of the war years from the 1920s into the late 1970s, initially at the Olympia venue in London, then from the latter 1930s at the Earls Court venue also in London.
Usually held in November, it showcased the next years models.
This blog features the 1938 Earls Court show catalogue, featuring the 1939 ranges of motorcycle, bicycles and associated accessories ...listed for 6d and ½" thick for the show held over the period 7th to 12th November and I've scanned in some of the contents for a look back then...
