Fascinating photo - do you know where it was taken? The two new machines in the foreground appear to be Norton Dominator Delux's which would make the photo from the early 1960's.

Dear AWJDThumper,

I just found this picture in pinterest without additional information. I thought BSA people will like it and I am happy to see your interest.

I always like a challenge and am determined to work out where the picture was taken. Fortunately, there are some clues in the photo and will see where they lead!

my first thought was westgate road in newcastle . on a hill and motorcycle shops on both sides . down to about a dozen now but thirty in its  hay day .

I've had a quick look and nothing seems to match the buildings so far but it looks like a good starting place.
