I sometimes look at images of Abingdon from Ebay where postcards and other collectibles are for sale. Very occasionally I will buy a vintage postcard.
Search for ‘Abingdon’ on Ebay and you will also find: MG memorabilia, Abingdon Town Football programmes and badges, Abingdon vases, and books produced by the Abingdon Press.
There are also a lot of King Dick Abingdon spanners and wrenches.
Somebody today is trying to sell a 1950s advert for King Dick tools. They were made at the Abingdon Works in Birmingham.
Going further back you find vintage motorcycles called Abingdon King Dick or AKD.
Does anybody know the missing link between Birmingham based King Dick Abingdon and Abingdon-on-Thames?
