    Re: early bicycle photos

    I ran across a couple of these before, these are great! The kid on the dirt street with the boots on, in Hooch's first set, I remember reading that photo was from 1920, somewhere in Texas, Austin maybe, and he ran his own messenger service. I believe that photo was taken in the "red light" district, where he would relay messages...

    Ronney was a famous sprint car driver
    I wonder if he raced against a bicycle once
