R.O.Harrison model identification.

Bova designs

Retro Newbie

Sadly I am not much of a cyclist especially now that I am in my 70's and not in the best of health.
I recently recovered a bike with R. O. Harrison frame from a deceased relative's cellar. I know it had been in that one persons ownership since the early 1960's and has not been used for many years. Originally single speed but Shimano derailleur fitted at some point in its life. The frame number 213333 would indicate the frame was made February 1951 but I cannot be certain, from Internet searches, what model this is. Would it be a Lyta, a Madison or some other model. Anyone prepared to offer suggestions?
Looks like it could be a good winter project for someone.
