Cycles Sirius Magnet

Availability: In stock

This magnet features Cycles Sirius, 1899, by Henri Gray.

Relatively cheap, easy to use, and distinctively modern, bicycles gave increased agency and mobility to women in the 1890s. Less confined to the domestic sphere, women became increasingly visible on the urban streetscape, leading to changes in everything from fashion to activism. Advertisements for bicycles like this one, capitalized on the image of an increasing modern woman.

Measures 3.5 x 2.5 inches.
