EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the enigmatic figure of Thomas Edward Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia, as he sits confidently atop a Brough Superior SS100 motorbike in RAF uniform. Born in Wales in 1888, Lawrence was an archaeologist, soldier, intelligence officer, and writer, who rose to international fame for his pivotal role in leading the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Lawrence's daring exploits and charismatic leadership earned him the respect and admiration of the Arab people, as well as the British military. However, after the war, he sought to distance himself from the notoriety and changed his name to T.E. Shaw. In this image, Lawrence's rugged features are illuminated by the sun, and his piercing gaze seems to convey a sense of adventure and determination. The RAF uniform he wears is a testament to his service as an intelligence officer during the war, while the sleek Brough Superior SS100 motorbike speaks to his love of speed and mechanical innovation. Lawrence's connection to the SS100 motorbike is an intriguing one. Known for his daring escapes on horseback during the Arab Revolt, it's interesting to see him adopt a new mode of transportation that was just as daring and exhilarating. The SS100 was a high-performance motorcycle produced by the Brough Superior company, and Lawrence's choice to ride one reflects his adventurous spirit and his desire to push the limits. This photograph is a fascinating glimpse into the complex and multifaceted life of one of history's most intriguing figures. Whether you're a fan of military history, adventure, or simply appreciate the beauty of a well-preserved photograph, this image of Lawrence of Arabia on his Brough Superior SS100 motorbike is sure to captivate and inspire.
