Thirties biking couple

Yes, it's a crap photo but what can I do, throw it in the bin? These low grade images come to me with job lots of higher quality snaps and poorly exposed as the picture may be it still tells a story.

What I like about this one is that it represents the beginning of an era of affordable photography. Images become more casual as the cost lowers, there's no longer any need for a careful pose, if the photo turns out bad the loss isn't great. Strange as the background is as a choice for location the composition is actually pretty good, the telegraph pole, the road and verge all draw in and the nonchalant pose of the lady, fag in hand, is great.

As for what the bike is, no bloody idea at all!
