Etsy find

pinup
I've been collecting antique photos for ages, but this is my first bicycle-related antique photo! A cabinet card found in the vintage category of etsy.



They're all dressed the same, which makes me think they were a bicycling team or club. The fella with the 'stache is certainly a handsome devil!

Edit to add: I have been informed by a reader who knows more about these things than I, the following - these fellows may have belonged to a club, but chances are they are dressed the same because that was the custom of those days. Specific activities had specific costumes and to deviate from that just wasn't done.
