Rudge-Whitworth was a very innovative company. In 1926 they announced a new invention that was available as an option on all their bicycles – Coupled Brakes. It cost an extra 10/-. When you applied either brake, they both came on. As he company put it, rather more dramatically:
What the Pneumatic Tyre has done for the Comfort of Cyclists, this new system of braking does for their Safety.

with Coupled Brakes
Wicker accessory child carrier
This Lady’s Rudge-Whitworth is in good original unrestored cosmetic condition. Apart from some added home-made skirt-guard string fittings, everything is original. And it has a period child-carrier fitted to the front. An oiler is fitted into the end of seat post (though it appears to be stuck in there). It’s ready to ride.
