H.D. (Hilda Doolittle, born in 1886) and Bryher (Annie Winifred Ellerman). The relationship was complicated. They were, respectively, an American writer best known for her poetry, and an English writer born into fantastic wealth, whose historical novels are now largely forgotten. Their relationship as lovers lasted from 1918 to H.D.’s death in 1961 this was a far from exclusive arrangement. This is a photo of them in later life.
Helen Nice, Bugatti Queen. In 1929, driving an Omega-Six, she won an all-female Grand Prix race at Autodrome de Montlhéry in the process setting a new world land speed record for women. Capitalizing on her fame, the following year she toured the United States, racing at a variety of tracks in an American-made Miller racing car. I'm not sure if this is the right picture to match to this text, but it is so cool I couldn't pass it up. Sassay!
