Brilliant image

"There are contemporary accounts of Dutch women skating from village to village along frozen canals, balancing a milk churn on their heads while doing their knitting".
What a fabulous image. I love it! Multi-taskers of today obviously had nothing on those Dutch women.

From "Brimstones and bicycles", an article by Mick Hamer on the invention of the bicycle in New Scientist 29 January 2005.
