Early Motoring

This photograph from the early 1900s is interesting in a couple of ways. Firstly, the car was made by the Star Cycle Company of Wolverhampton. This might seem strange but in the early days of motoring there were hundreds of car manufacturers, most of which failed or were taken over by larger companies. Secondly, driving was very much a ‘man’ thing. Is this really a lady driver or did hubby allow her to sit in the driving seat “just this once darling” for the photo?
