A Perilous Passage by George Ranstead

A man is given a terrifying ride in a sidecar by a female motorcycle rider, zooming away from other vehicles, buses, trams and horses in the street. During World War I, women increasingly took on traditionally male jobs, a fact this humorous picture points out. It is drawn on a postcard by George Ranstead, an amateur artist of the Great War who served in the Army Pay Corps. Ranstead was one of many soldiers of WWI who took up drawing as a hobby. His subjects range from wartime humour to pictures of pretty girls and are clearly influenced by images in the illustrated magazines of the period.
circa 1916
