1870 – Lady posing on a Velocipede

Toronto. Lorne Shields was one of our speakers in December. Lorne brought his major bicycle image acquisitions for 2019 in both a printout copy and a thumb drive with digital files. A misunderstanding  between Lorne and Mark resulted in no laptop to read the thumb drive. Fortunately the printed versions served as an alternative.

An example of his acquisitions is the posed lady at left. She is sitting on a Velocipede. The original photo was printed about 1870.

Note: Lorne is our bicycle historian and is well known internationally for both his bicycles and photographs. He has a large collection in a museum in Gatineau (Ottawa). Drop Lorne a note care of me at if you have any needs or questions on bicycles, bicycle history, or bicycle photographs.
