Miss Clara Wagner with Her Motorcycle at Coenties Slip, New York (Back)

Miss Clara Wagner with Her Motorcycle at Coenties Slip, New York (Back)
The back of an advertising postcard postmarked April 22, 1911, Elmira, N.Y. Printed by Blanchard Press, New York.

Message (a printed reproduction of a handwritten note):

Dear Boys:

Miss Clara Wagner, the most successful and experienced lady motorcyclist, always uses the Eclipse Coaster Brake. Miss Wagner states that "The perfect security I felt in my brake equipment contributed largely to the pleasure." As she had numerous occasions to test it, and it was not found wanting.

That's good evidence.
