    In this 1936 Cycling Tips item Evelyn can be seen riding a "curly" Hetchins with its unusual curved tubing rear frame design. This type and make of bike only started being made in early 1935 and could well have been given to her by Hyman Hetchins to promote his new cycle business as he was always looking for such opportunities.
