I have only seen photographs and illustrations of the wonderful "American Truss Frames". But I can remember well as a child in 1950's Great Britain seeing our own "Elswick Truss Frames". These had a similar arrangement of tubes as the Ivor Johnson except our version was used on the down tubes. These Truss Elswicks were very popular with the CTC (Cycling Touring Club) old guard. I believe the elswick model was called the " Club Racer Model 20".
