    This old bicycle looks like it has wooden wheels? Compared to the plastic “Big Wheels” of today it is a piece of art in form and structure!

    MaryJane, my copy of The American Girls handy Book arrived late yesterday. What a fantastic read this is starting out to be. I love how the authors turned around old ideas of what young girls could do. No doubt they were the early Suffragettes and quite possible, the supporters of the Womens Land Army for WWI. I am so glad you posted about this book. It is a keeper and I am excited to have it in my little library of the turn of the century.

    I’ll bet that bike had way more fun in its lifetime than any fancy bike of today.

    I had the boys equivalent of that book when my kids were little. A little like the old Scout handbook. We had one tricycle in kindergarten. It was during the second world war and they were very hard to come by. We all found out what it meant to share!
