Caught On Camera

    That's one hell of a contraption, the canopied Penny Farthing bicycle. I bet it raised a few eyebrows of the general public in Portmeirion during the filming 45 years ago. Completely impractical, the canopy serves no purpose, certailny it affords no protection against inclement weather. But as a symbolic item, it works very well. Its iconic, eyecatching, memorable, and in that way it works superbly.    Be seeing you
