Summary:
An example of a stereograph which pokes fun at the domestic upheavals caused by the ascent of the "New Woman." This emancipated woman is preparing to ride her bicycle after giving instructions on laundry and child-rearing to her confused husband, wearing an apron. The fact that this interior is part of a stage set can be seen readily at the top of the plate, which would have been cropped out for the final stereograph prints. A baby is in a cradle and two girls are playing on the floor. Cf. stereograph by Kilburn, 1897, Cat. No. 0060.St.Laundry.
