Just found this with Google:
I bought a Dawes cycle, and later traded it on a Claud Butler. Next came a Hollingsworth and then, the most remarkable cycle I ever owned, a Paris Galibier.
This was certainly one of the most distinctive of bicycle designs. The Galibier had been designed by Harry Rensch. He began making the Paris marque cycles around 1936. The prototype Galibier was made during the war years but the cycle did not appear on the market until after the Second World War was over.
I purchased mine around 1947 from Geoff Mercer who operated The Lightweight Shop in Ipswich, Suffolk. Mercer, I am told, now lives retired in Australia.

Ken Nicholls (who was local secretary of the Ipswich CTC in my day and still is!) mentions the shop here:
