Old Photos

While going through old photos for my mother's funeral, I came across this one. I have no idea what brand of bike she's riding (or even if it was hers), just that it was taken in early spring, 1948, somwhere in Kansas City.
Does anybody else have old photos of people riding?

Great photo. Is the quality good enough that you could blow it up a bit. It'd look wonderful in a frame on your wall.

I like the photograph.
By the way, it makes me think of this quote:

Don't know, I'll have to check.
I know that my folks have photo's of my
brother and me riding 50's vintage cruisers.

D*Alex, Condolences on the loss of your mother.
I recall you mentioning a funeral but wasn't aware
of it being your mother.

Marty

Your mom was cool!

I can only guess that the bike is a Schwinn. I am led to think so from the three-circle chainring and the long head-tube.

MAYBE some of the knowledgeable old-timers are still hanging around the Schwinn forum. Post your pic at http://www.schwinnbike.com/heritage/....php?forumid=4

See if any of those cats can identify the bike for you. Wouldn't it be neat if you had your mom's bike now?
