Girls roadster

Sunday best on for a day out. As always with these old pictures the joy is in speculating just what was going on....

Sunday best. A portable bench. Factory in the background. Chalk markers on the grass - a sports ground? Spectating a Sunday league game? Workers picnic? Religious gathering? Make up your own back story.

Two wheeled-wise the girl is riding a child sized rod brake roadster which could be one of dozens of makes available at the time. The frame size is quite generous for her, but that was the way back then, you would buy as big as the youngster could manage in order to make it last as long as possible.
