Here is a fun vintage magazine advertisement for a Columbia bicycle. The ad claims the bicycle is easy to learn to ride and that an ordinary rider can go more miles in a day over common roads than a horse. Great images for your steampunk or mixed media projects! I scanned the original ad from the November 1879 issue of the American Agriculturist magazine. Here is a black and white clipart version of the bicycle from the ad. Click on images to enlarge.
