Shotts History Group had an article on Adam Brown, senior, and junior, in their bulletin ( Volume  4 – 2005). Information supplied by Mrs Mary Dunsmore, a granddaughter. The father also called Adam was a cyclist, selected for the 1930 Olympics but could not afford to go. Described as the fastest cyclist in the UK. Adam, the son, featured in the Barrs Irn Bru advert, a coal miner, weightlifter, he died in 1933 aged 54. It would appear from my previous posting he also used the name Lewis Lyon, Highland Games athlete, I have not come across this name. Mary remembers when Adam lived at Gray Street, clearly in poor health, she recalls the photo of him in his “leopard”suit was on display.

I can't find this anywhere. Does anyone have a copy?
