Ellen Alma Morley would become one of the first women in the UK to ride the wooden drum on a motorcycle called the Wall of Death. Her adventure began in her home town of Skegness with the entrepreneur Billy Butlin. She most famously rode using the name Daredevil Alma. Her own riding career ran from 1929 - 1940. She toured the UK, Ireland and Scandinavia, she saved personal letters, posters, photographs and even business cards. Her collection extended to material from many other rider. Some time after Alma retired from riding she compiled a large scrapbook but continued collecting anything relating to Wall of Death. There were additions to this archive right up to 1989. This book includes almost all her collated material in chronological order.
