I’d swear that I notice something new every time I visit the Streetlife Museum in Hull and this occasion it was these notices in the window of the bicycle shop, which forms part of the Museum’s comprehensive bicycle collection.
I do not ride a bicycle myself; it was more the language of Edwardian bicycle that caught my attention. I noted in my diary, as you can only get an impression of the notices through my photographs, some of the names and features. I found “The Victor” bicycle, the “Albion Saddle” and “Lucas’s King of the Road lamp” particularly noteworthy, amongst the impressive lists of patriotically named bicycles and accessories.
