Two women reminisce about their teenage years in the 1890s. They were obviously better off than many of their counterparts of the day but it's still quite fascinating to get first-person accounts that go so far back. I'm also impressed by one woman's cycling endurance. London to Brighton and back on what was effectively a fixed-gear bike is quite something.
The story of the Liverbirds, Liverpool's first female rock band that came up behind the beatles and had quite a run. Amazing and moving story. (via Kottke)
