Vintage Copenhagen Cycle Chic

I'm loving this vintage postcard from the late 1950's Copenhagen. As well as all of these classic rush hour photos from my city. Frightfully stylish, the lot of them.

Read more about the Copenhagen by Bike exhibition at the Copenhagen City Museum over at Copenhagenize.com. Even our bike messengers used to be well-dressed chaps.

Makes you wonder how many of those bikes (and their riders) are still on the road. It would be interesting if you could find someone who is actually in one of these shots, and get a picture of them riding, today.

Fantastic! The rides are even more stylish in these clothes...

I wanted to share this that I came across, http://is.gd/5gZp1 which shows Rita Hayworth and friends on bicycles... looks like in southern California, 1950s? Hilsen, John.
