The Faded Lady and the Bicylces

On the fourth #TBT of each month, we feature one of the most common types of vintage photos, the portrait.

Really old photos, especially albumen prints, have a habit of fading really bad. Take this one, for example.

Thanks to Photoshop, though, a lot of detail can be brought out, and it becomes clearer that the photo is of a woman sitting with a pair of bicycles at the side of a road or path.

So there's not much of a story with this photo, but someone thought it worth the time to take it, and preserve it. And maybe that's enough.
