'Mothers Behind'

Since the pioneer years of cycling the pursuit has inspired bawdy comedy. Here's a postcard from the immediate post WW2 years. This one hasn't particularly stood the test of time though one questions if it was ever laugh out loud funny. Whatever the case it's an intersting little snippet of social history.

The reverse of the card carries a ditty to inspire postwar austerity: 

'Keep saving for a rainy day'.
We saved to win the war,
Our efforts must not cease;
By saving more and more,
We'll surely win the peace!

'Humour' from back in the day.
