It was probably Freddie Grubb, I sold some of the road/track frames in the later 1950's, about £9.00. Excellent value at the time, plain 531.

Tel, that one was the cheapest Holdsworthy made. I sold loads of them £7-12-6d. Made with plain drawn probably reynolds grade A.
I rated them betterr than the gas pipe Carltons, they spent money on the frame rather than the finish.
