1 of 1

This July sees the publication of a new 272-page hardback from American author Cris Sommer Simmons, entitled ‘The American Motorcycling Girls 1900-1950.

In the publishers’ own words, it’s "A fabulous, museum quality collection of original period photography of women on motorcycles in the first half of the twentieth century across America. [The book] is a stunning social, cultural, sartorial and geographical study of the emancipated women pioneers “riding” across and around America “before the freeway came to town”.  

It will cost £35, and be available from www.starbooksales.com
