Friday Fun!

My boyfriend sent me this photograph from 1939 and I just had to share it with you guys. It's of a rather strange invention; a bicycle that fits a family of four...including sewing machine!!


Picture from this page here. It's worth checking out as there are some other fantastic unusual images including 'face cones' to protect yourself during a snow storm, stunning 1950s dresses and a little boy who looks as excited about getting new shoes as me!

  4. Bizzare! That is hillarious. Still, cracking up at Oona's comment. 'Strapping' is not the word. Going to check out the others. Have a great weekend!

  5. That is awesome - I wish someone would drive me around while I sewed! I also seem to be following oona and sonja around on the blog comments...

    1. It would make for a lot more sewing time if we could all sew on the daily commute wouldn't it?!
