Penny Farthing

Our next door neighbour has no less than SEVEN penny farthing bicycles strapped to this van. How many old-time bikes could he need? Is he planning on racing them?

I would pay -and pay well- to see that.


  1. That is sensationally awesome!

    I'd rather imagine that they all get together and drink tea with pinkies held high in a little circle before singing tra,la,lala,la off down the lane!

  2. That's woven quite the image in my mind's eye Rebekah!

    I've only just noticed that the smaller of the two wheels (the "farthing") is nearly the same diameter as the car's wheel! Or is that an illusion of depth?
