Some ladies posing on motorcycles in the 1930s. The cycle in the rear was a then new New Imperial, the machine in the front was an already vintage 1902 Holden with engine cranks directly driving the rear wheel.
“London Brighton and South Coast Railway 0-6-0 built by Manning Wardle in 1866. The engine was renumbered in 1879 and withdrawn from service in 1885.”
I’ve been looking through a very interesting set of photos on flickr, of victorian era steam locomotives. This particular example shows off a mid 1800s fad to incorporate architectural elements into the designs of machines.
