motolady:

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.

[ more from the 1930s ]

17th May 1952 : Picture Post - 5861 - Should Comics Be Banned?

  • Two boys lean against a wall, absorbed in reading their comics.
  • A schoolboy avidly reading the American comic ‘Roy Carson’, just one of the US publications which some people feel are detrimental to the minds of young children.
  • Two schoolboys reading American comics which, it was claimed by Picture Post, ‘result in a blunting of human life and human decencies’.
