Postcard: “Then they will be satisfied”

Part of the Museum & Women's Suffrage collections.

Postcard: A smiling lady in a red trouser-suit and high heeled shoes rides a bicycle. In the background a bald, white-bearded gentleman in an old-fashioned farmworker’s smock is so surprised that his hat has popped off and he’s dropping his pitchfork.

Caption: “What it will come to […] Then they will be satisfied”

Inscription on reverse: “Westward Ho! Cromer 27=7=11. I saw one similar to the card a few days ago, very comfy I should say, especially in windy weather. I learnt the bike last week and find riding useful and enjoyable. J.C.”
Addressed to: V. Ross Gardner Esq., Oakrak & Simperdown, Natal, South Africa. Postmarked Cromer.
