When we lived in Prince of Wales Road I was quite friendly with him but never got to ride the pennyfarthing. Didn't know he took to teaching. If I remember right he went to Wheatley Street School. Good memories of him. Edited by member, 19th Jul 2021 2:48 pm
Hi argon. I’m assuming it’s the same John Goldby, as there can’t be many people of that name that rode pennyfarthings in the Coventry Carnival. He was quite a big, thick set man as I remember.

mickw. it could well be, he was tall, random images bubble up from my poor memory and I now think that he and his dad had two bicycles and I think that they both rode them in the carnivals. I recall his dad as a short man whilst John was a bit of a bean pole.
