A pair of smokin’ dames on their motorbikes in Britain, 1930s. Photographs of women motorcyclists from this time period always fascinate me; society norms changing quickly through the early 1900s allowed women to exercise and enjoy some new freedoms. Can you imagine wearing a corset on a motorcycle? 
Original photo source unknown, though I suspect it’s from historial archives.
