20 September 1956 “A Day of Biking”

We had such lovely comments yesterday and I really appreciate our discussion. And from that I plan on making a new post open-ended to any who lived in the 1950’s to share with us.

 womanonbikestockingsYou can bet I shan’t look like this, I do wear a dress biking but stockings and heels are a bit much, ever for me. I shall look more like thiswomanonbikeLoafers and socks and a dress or skirt are my usual biking attire. It is a quite comfortable way to ride, you can be sure.

Also, enjoy this fun educational biking film from 1955. It is also interesting as it tells you, near the beginning, how to start a car then. Enjoy!
So, have a wonderful day and enjoy whatever it is you have to do today.
Happy Homemaking.
