french officer This vintage real photo postcard captures the scene of a man sharing an intimate moment with a pretty blonde woman sitting on a motor scooter. The photographer appears to have caught the man in a lustful moment. I doubt the man is giving tips about motorcycle care and maintenance. I find it unusual that the woman would be riding a motorcycle while wearing  a long dress. Finding information to identify the manufacturer of this motorcycle was difficult. I discovered that a company named “Tomos” manufactured a bike whose name included the word “Galeb”. Note that a nameplate on the front of the bike says “Galeb”. Tomos manufactured motorcycles from their factory based in Koper, Slovenia. They still provide various products to their Eastern European market. The language printed on this postcard is from Slovenia. It appears that the photographer was Z. Mirkovic and the publisher was ZK. The postcard is part of a series (no. 2881). This photo postcard measures about 5 5/8″ x 4″ and is in very good condition (see scans).

An Arlo Guthrie song has the following lyrics. “I don’t want a pickle. Just want to ride on my motorcycle. And I don’t want a tickle. Cause I’d rather ride on my motorcycle.” Motorcyclists often have a passionate relationship with their bikes and riding, Perhaps the chap in this vintage snapshot shares that same enthusiasm. This photo features a middle aged or older motor cyclist. His bike has a British (Bristol) license plate and was manufactured by the Douglas company. Douglas was a British motorcycle manufacturer that operated from 1907 through 1957. The company was based in the city of Bristol.  Interestingly, the company also built cars in its early days (1913-1922). This photograph measures about 3 3/8″ x 2 3/8″ and is in good condition (see scans). I believe that this photograph is from the 1920’s.
