Old photo of a woman on a vintage 1930s Harley-Davidson. She was the first woman to get a motorcycle license in Washington, D.C.. The description with the photo: "Although she weights only 88 pounds--one-third of the machine she rides, Mrs. Sally Halterman is the first woman to be granted a license to operate a motorcycle in the District of Columbia. She is 27 years old and 4 feet, 11 inches tall. Immediately after receiving her permit, Mrs. Halterman was initiated into the D.C. Motorcycle Club - the only girl ever to be accorded this honor."
