Rod Vespa

My Aunt Catherine was a Headteacher and a real character.In the 50s she was one of the first people to get a Vespa (Pictured). I understand this model is called the "Rod" type? Catherine's Dog Beauty went with her everywhere, and sat in class under her desk as did her subsequent dogs.As you see the dog rode on the pillion in a wicker basket. My Aunt would travel with the dog on her Vespa from St Albans to see us in Farnham ,Surrey.

  • you couldnt get away with haveing a dog accessory now! the boys in blue would have her up in court quicker than a v8 vespa. and the judges would probly give her 10 years in the clink. and the say we dont live in a police state,yhea right.
