This is a photograph of my father's Raleigh 3-speed. I believe he bought it in the early 1950s. This image was captured in the autumn of 1985, during a seaside ride I was doing up the coast on the north shore of Massachusetts. I put many, many miles on this bike during my junior year in college. It's quite a tank, but found it easy to ride and once momentum took over, it was even easier. I still have the bike, and am planning on restoring it at some point in the future. Though, it's in remarkable condition for its age.
