All ready to go

Here’s a photograph from the May 4 1934 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a young woman with a bicycle.

I am fascinated by this photograph because of how the bicycle was constructed: it looks like somebody attached automobile tires to a bicycle frame. I wonder how well the bike handled?

I did a search for Joan O’Leary, and it appears that she was just a random nice-looking woman from Hollywood, not a movie star. There is no entry under her name in the Internet Movie Database; searches for her turned up other people with that name, including a Joan O’Leary who is an associate producer on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
