They needed cyclists back then … as now: BAD TEETH NO BAR

Mark Peterson shares his visit to the WWI centenary exhibition:

I visited the WW1 exhibition at the Melbourne museum last year amid the centenary commemorations. Among the items displayed were various paraphernalia but this particular poster took my fancy. Perhaps some of our members may find this interesting as well. 001

Ed’s comment: – Your teeth (or lack thereof) was no barrier, but I wonder how many women applied.

Thanks Mark, for this most interesting history snippet.
