I heard about this through my pal Karen Porter who was at Joan's birthday party. Joan was one of the first Rockers in the 1950s. She used to frequent the world famous ACE Cafe in London. Rumour has it she was fired from a job because she rode a bike. Back then it wasn't lady like to do such things. Her story is captured in the ACE TIMES book. Joan still looks terrific celebrating her 80th birthday back at the ACE CAFE in London for the first time since back in the day. I hope I can be as cool as her one day!

If you want to see more check out her son's photo albums on facebook.
