Six early forms of bicycles and tricycles, 19th century Featured 8 Aug 2006 Print

Six early forms of bicycles and tricycles, 19th century

Six early forms of bicycles and tricycles, 19th century. The cycles shown are the Otto Dicycle, the Rover Safety, Singer's Special Safety, the King of Clubs, the Humber Tricycle and Singer's Straight Steerer convertible. The Dicycle consists of two parallel wheels, with the saddle between them. The Rover and Singer's Special Safety show the return to a design based on two wheels of the same size, however, although safer, they were still far more uncomfortable than the high-wheel bicycles. The King of Clubs had solid rubber tyres and provided a smoother ride, they were a success with affluent young men and had their hey-day in the 1880s

Falls View Suspension Bridge, Niagara, North America, c1869-c1889

Falls View Suspension Bridge, Niagara, North America, c1869-c1889.

It was the largest single span bridge until the Brooklyn Bridge was completed 14 years later. Opened in 1869, this bridge was built by Samuel Keefer to take visitors by foot and carriage to the famous Niagara Falls. The bridge collapsed into the river during a storm in 1889.

Bells improved reaping machine by Crosskill, c1840s. Artist: Joseph Wilson Lowry

Bell's improved reaping machine by Crosskill, c1840s. A farmer operates the machine by guiding two horses behind which push the harvester forward. This machine designed by Patrick Bell (1799- 1869), was one of the first practical reaping machines to incorporate features that are still seen on modern combine harvesters. Bell and Cyrus McCormick both put reaping machines into the Great Exhibition (1851), they helped lead to the widespread acceptance of mechanised reaping in England
