Child on tricycle, aboard steamer

The photograph, taken onboard a steamer in Kintyre, shows a small child on a tricyle.

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
