A PRETTY FASHIONISTA AND HER BICYCLE (VINTAGE PHOTOGRAPH)

lady biker 1

A pretty and well dressed young woman poses for her portrait beside her bicycle at an unidentified photography studio in an unidentified town or city. The young woman is wearing a ruffled blouse with puffed shoulders, a neckerchief, and a hat with a feather. She is also wearing a ring as well as jewelry pinned on her blouse. She is dressed to go riding on her pretty white bicycle. This is in fact the way woman dressed to go bike riding. Interestingly, the reverse of the photograph has a portrait of a little girl glued to it (see image below). It is likely that the little girl in the picture grew up to be the woman with the bicycle. This vintage photograph measures 5″ x 7″ and is a great representation of cycling history.

  1. Does anyone know what year this was by any chance? Please ad thank you…

    • certainly this photo was taken after 1900. I am hypothesizing that it was taken in the 1900’s or the 1910’s.
