"In the good old biking days..."


On Shorpy Historic Photographs, you always find something interesting. How about a bike shop from 1919 in Washington, DC, USA? Look how the different workers have their place - women on the balcony, away from the oil (accountants? secretaries), the foreman or salesman in a suit in the front, and the repairmen in the back. I love the floor and the wood counter.

No? Is there a link you see? What browser are you using - it works great in Firefox on PC.

There is an issue with the photo - it only shows sometimes. I will fix it later today, ok?

Photo is fixed!

This looks just like the Mountain Bike Specialists shop on Main Avenue in Durango, Colorado, today!

Seriously.
