ACE four lady rider

This is just a wonderful old image on so many counts. I love American four motorcycles from the twenties and for it's era the image challenges stereotypes. It's full of positivity and Miss Gallic is the embodiment of the term 'pluck'.

The picture is from a London press agency archive and the annotation on the back is as follows:

'A one-legged winner'

'Miss Gallic who was the proud winner of the 27 mile motor cycle race held in Denmark, although she has only one leg, her activity beat all other competitors.'

Staged photo of Miss Gallic working on her ACE four.
