Ladies Decorated Bike Ride (Wetherby)
Black & White imageUndated This group of ladies and young girls pose for the camera to show off their elaborately decorated bicycles. Flowers are entwined around handlebars and frames and hoops encircled with blooms and greenery are attached. The residents are dressed in their best clothes and are wearing hats also bedecked with flowers. This was the Ladies Decorated Bike Ride which may have been one of the events held at a Water Carnival. Carnivals were held at the Ings for a few years either side of the First World War. This may have been part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in honour of Queen Victoria held in 1897.
