Kind of reminds me of Posh Spice.... if she developed another facial expression, did something about her tape worm problem and put on some weight.

According to shorpy.com
July 18, 1925. Prince George's County, Maryland. "Bicycle races at Laurel Speedway."

Apparently it was a 1 1/8 miles wooden speedway track featuring 48 degree banked turns but was only operational between June 1925 and September 1926.

If you view the full size pic you will notice 4th bike from left has a frame pump fitted, & a couple have brake levers.

Crowd photos confirm straw boaters were a fashion necessity in 1925

Hmm.....

Sorry but in the good ol' days of chic cycling, no-one would have been caught dead riding (or doing anything much) in a tweed jacket with summer shorts, tiny socks and sneakers :shock:

It'd be "No way Sam! Outa here man." There was something called standards to keep up.
