“Lady Florence Norman, a suffragette, on her motor-scooter in 1916, traveling to work at offices in London where she was a supervisor. The scooter was a birthday present from her husband, the journalist and Liberal politician Sir Henry Norman.” (Thanks to Barbara Fuentes for photo and text.) It’s not a motorcycle, but she certainly paved the way for us motoladies.

It can’t be denied that Harley Davidson certainly has some interesting history and took a huge part in the development of American motorcycling culture. These are vintage photos from the Harley Davidson archives- early assembly line and factory.
One of my favorite submissions to date… a motolady from generations past! This is a picture of my great grandmother Ingeborg in Boston in the 1910s. She moved to the U.S. all the way from Sweden, and a century later I did the same thing. It’s kinda cool to think that this motolady thing runs in my blood, even though it apparently skipped a couple of generations :). – Sanna (Cinderalley)
