Photograph showing three smartly dressed young women sitting upright on bicycles, supporting one another by holding on to the handlebars. It seems a perfect metaphor for sisterhood and the emancipation of women. The names of the women have been inscribed beneath the photograph - Mabel Asser, Lily Carver and Laura.
