Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday Header : 407  24 February 2018

I think bicycles are one of the most pleasant forms of transportation and exercise.


Illustration from “Wheels and Cycling,” 1888

I like the illustration above as a work of art.

Motobike that turns into a motosled! 1902

My favorite that I found on Flickr Commons is this bike that you can turn into a sled. Talk about ingenuity.

    My ggrandfather who was in living in Melbourne was making bikes when they became motorized so his shop sold both motorized and nonmotorized cycles and then became a motor mechanic. It was a fascinating time. I love your photo entitled “Palace Emporium, New South Wales, 1899”
