Postcard of woman cycling on Birmingham's Hagley Road, 1905

Thanks to Connecting Histories for this picture, please have a look at the site for more details about the postcard and what they do.


  1. love the photo,
    interesting to read the article also , & to see & realise just how many cycle makers there were in Birmingham
    also from the site I spotted this 1900 mag cover which features a female cyclist riding the Ladies Safety Model:

    Donna N

  2. What a great cover, I will reblog that at some point if that's ok Donna.

    Yeah, Birmingham's cycling history is pretty interesting. I have a bike waiting to be rebuilt made by Birmingham Small Arms Company - guns and bikes!
