Man helping child on tricycle, onboard a steamer

A man helping a small girl to ride a tricycle. The photograph has been taken onboard a steamer in Kintyre.

Bicycling was a very popular mode of transport during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Improved road surfaces allowed cyclists to go on longer runs and with this demand came the invention of more lightweight designs. Children's bicycles also came on the market for the first time, during this period
