    Tom Avon was the trading name of a small shop in Bedminster, a southern suburb of Bristol. There was a small shop frontage with a frame building set up in the back room. I cannot remember the chap's name. This was in the early 80s. He was never in the top echelons of frame builders and I am not sure when the business packed in, but I doubt it was any later than late 80s.
