Timeless Copenhagen Cycle Chic
Classic Copenhagen Cycle Chic. This is a Danish politician Aksel Larsen [1897-1972] on his bicycle in 1938. A classy Copenhagen woman is behind him. If you don't focus on the car in the background, this photo could have been taken yesterday.

And thanks to John for this classic tourism poster from, coincedentally, 1938. Hans Bendix did a number of these tourism poster featuring the bicycle both pre and post-war.
Here are some other classics we've posted about before. Hans Bendix did the one on the right.
