STUNNING RETRO pictures have revealed a road trip with a difference as two women enjoy a weekend away staying in a sidecar-cum-caravan in 1959.
The incredible images show the two friends on a motorbike and sidecar as they begin to transform the sidecar into their accommodation for the night.
Other striking shots show the various stages of the transformation as the women create a caravan from the sidecar.
They are then pictured relaxing inside the caravan alongside a baby and enjoying a well-earned rest after the hard work of building it.
The remarkable photographs were taken in the UK in 1958 as two women enjoyed a weekend away during the British summer.
“What could be easier when the British weather turns to summer than stopping along a roadside and setting up camp, just like these two friends,” states the original caption.
“The transformation from sidecar to caravan begins, with everything you need neatly hidden in various compartments. The motorcycle is a Panther Model 120, 650cc single cylinder engine.
“The young women start by removing the roof of the sidecar. The motorcycle comes in handy as a step ladder to secure the roof of the caravan.
“The transformation is complete, so the young women can relax, inside their compact caravan.”
