So often the image of a Mod riding a scooter is of a guy. Back in the day it was relatively uncommon for a girl to be riding a scooter, but some did blaze the way. This painting by David Barrow features a group of Mods riding scooters, the bright sky and their mainly pale scooters are dominant. The guys are painted in almost monochrome hues, but your eye is drawn to a girl riding her scooter wearing a powder blue dress.
Some may say she is probably riding pillion I prefer to think she is making her own way in the world of scootering, the only colour in a world so often filled with turbulent dark days
