Update on the photos. I got an email Alice Roepke
(Website: http://www.tillieanderson.com) who says
“You asked, so I want to let you know that the “pictures of other women racers” belong to me. They are from a PowerPoint presentation i made for The Wheelman back in 2000. Tillie Anderson was my great aunt. She died in 1965 when i was 3, but was like a second mother to my mom since she didn’t have children of her own. I have all her collection of scrapbooks, pictures, and racing memorabilia, including one of her bicycles. Pretty cool. Thank you for helping to promote her story on your blog!”
One thought on “Pictures of Women Cyclists of the 1890s (from our archives! )”
We learned about “Tillie the Terrible Swede” at a cool bike history exhibit in Stockholm this summer. She was a seamstress before she was a pro cyclist! Check out old bikes and a picture of Tillie here:
