The Bikes of “Call the Midwife”

In the wake of last year’s Downton Abbey fever (which surprisingly, I successfully avoided despite being an incorrigible Anglophile), PBS is putting a lot of marketing behind their new series Call the Midwife. Set in the 1950s, the show follows a group of midwives (some are nuns, some are not) as they make calls on London’s east end—home of the city’s poorest residents.

Delightfully, the midwives get around by bike! Here are a few stills from the first episode, all beautiful:

Actually, one of the reasons the show piqued my interest was seeing publicity stills, banner ads, and trailers that all featured bike riding scenes. And what beautiful bikes they are! Raleigh cruisers, I’m sure.

(The rest of the show is pretty good so far too…)
