Motor bike enthusiasts recreated history in Spalding by turning the clock right back to pre-First World War times in the town.
About a dozen bikers formed their own starting grid outside The Red Lion Hotel in Market Place where they re-enacted a meeting of Spalding Bike Club from 1912-13.
The collection of bikes were fit to grace any vintage display, from a 1930s Velocette to an up-to-date 1,000cc Honda.
Alan Barker, of Spalding, who organised the re-enactment, said: “A friend of mine found the picture online and, with my connection to Spalding, sent it to me.
“We then emailed each other a little bit and said to each other ‘Why don’t we try and put something together in 2017?’
“So we hatched a cunning plan around it by contacting motor bike enthusiasts who we both knew, asking them to meet outside the Red Lion Hotel in Market Place where the original picture was taken about 100 years ago. Then we planned to head off to a motor sport event in Upwood, near Huntingdon, for bacon rolls and refreshments.”

At the time when the original Spalding Bike Club met up, Britain was still reeling from the sinking of the Titanic.
Alan said: “Everybody was quite excited and there was even talk that it would be good if another group did it again in 100 years’ time.”
