Goodness Gracious, Another Bike Picture
Here in the United States, we'd call this a girl's bike. As can be seen in this photo, it's a bike design that allows women to ride while wearing a skirt. In countries with a tradition of bike commuting, it would be called a step through bike. Men wearing suits can't straddle a conventional bike any more efficiently than a woman wearing a skirt.
Anyway, bought this one in southern California, and the house looks like the classic California craftsman. They can be found all over Los Angeles County, and they're also common in the bay area. There are a lot of them in Pasadena and South Pasadena.
