Postcard from Lucy

Elegance on a bicycle day, (c) LAPI/Roger-Viollet, Parisienne de Photographie

I received this wonderful postcard from the lovely Lucy Leonardi last week – written in Paris, sent in Sydney (the Sturt’s Desert Pea stamps were a bit of a giveaway). The caption reads “Elegance on a Bicycle Day, June 1942”. How did I not know about Elegance on a Bicycle Day before now? And shouldn’t every day be Elegance on a Bicycle Day? I think so. As Lucy rightly observes, “I think we should wear more turbans!”
