"A lot of credence has been given to the theory that the bicycle contributed in large part to the suffrage movement of the late 19th/early-20th centuries, and this supposition carries a great deal of voracity. However, sometimes a little style, a touch of breezy elegance goes a long way towards convincing a different demographic, one say, not quite so concerned with being liberated, to get their backsides on a bicycle. Case in point, this poster for Dion-Bouton, graced with a woman as sporty as the spaniel that accompanies her, posed atop a verdant seaside cliff for no one in particular. Or perhaps for someone very specific indeed: the male viewer apt to make a purchase for his soon-to-be-domestically-unchained better half" (Rennert, PAI-XXXV 118)
