153 In over 30 years of undertaking personal research into lightweight cycle frame builders and retailers, I have never had such difficulty in establishing even the most elementary of details on a frame builder. Geoff Clark’s racing career, albeit quite short, is well documented. However, his cycle retailing career isn’t so.

I have to mention at this point, that I wouldn’t have been able to compile this short history without the invaluable assistance of a number of people including first and foremost, Derek Browne fellow V-CC member, who was responsible for doing virtually all of the leg-work on my behalf, who, lives locally to Bradford and the locations associated with Geoff; Ken Russell, famous international racing cyclist, friend and rival of Geoff’s; Richard Hoddinott (V-CC), whom I must blame for first getting me into this situation by selling me one of Geoff Clark’s first frames; Tony Tomkins, V-CC member and fellow Bradford Racing Cyclists Club (BRCC) member of Geoff Clark. Plus a number of enthusiasts who currently own examples of Geoff’s frames.

Geoff Clark was born in 1923 and came to prominence during the period of the Second World War, when he was a successful Bradford Racing Cyclists Club (BRCC) cyclist and competitor. He became one of the founding 24 cyclists led by Percy Stallard of Wolverhampton, in establishing the B.L.R.C. in 1942* and arguably one of the most influential people in the road racing movement at this time, in the opinion of Derek Browne and Ken Russell.

I have yet to establish how Geoff wasn’t called up for military service during WWII as he would have been 19 at this time. It has been suggested that it was colour blindness, but this wouldn’t have precluded an administrative role of some kind. Clearly he was incredibly fit and was an entry in the first B.L.R.C. Road Race - Llangollen to Wolverhampton in 1942, along with 32 other competitors which, interestingly, didn’t include Percy Stallard!* (He was the organizer).

He rode in the first National RR Championship, 1943; the first Stage Race in Gt. Britain over the August Bank Holiday, 1944*. Although the results of his placing are not known at this stage. In the post war years he participated in the first ‘Victory Tour’ – Brighton to Glasgow, held in 1945 over 5 days and 542 miles, finishing second overall and winning one stage, the London to Wolverhampton. This race was the one, famously illustrating the three Taylor brothers, Jack, Norman and Ken as participants, who came 10th, 13th and 14th respectively. Notably Percy Stallard finished 15th.*

193 Mary Power came from a theatrical family, for two or three generations on both sides, some were actors, Music Hall artistes, and some worked in the circus. Others were farmers, miners or mill workers. Most came from the Manchester area, although the Powers hail from Wexford, Ireland.

Mary's stage name was Maria Santoi, her first husband was James Moss, her second Alfred Fuller was a high-wire performer. His stage name was Alf Rozelle. Mary and Alf's daughter, Honor Fuller, had the stage name of Jill Summers who after a long career became famous for her role as Phyllis in Coronation Street.

Mary's older children, accompanied her on tour whenever possible.

At the time of her death, she was appearing at Bradford Alhambra where she was working with her son, Tom F. Moss.

It was reported that Mary had a "fling" with the father of former prime minister John Major, who was a Music Hall artiste. His stage name was Abraham, Thomas Ball, later known as Tom Major-Ball or Tom Major. Tom fathered at least two illegitimate children, one with Mary Power (Marie Santoi)

This seems to be confirmed in John Major's autobiography.
