Mercer Wheelmen - 1893


Below see some pages from the "Wind", a newsletter, possibly hand-written and -decorated, for the Mercer County Wheelmen, a bike club from the 19th century. There are covers from April and September 1893, lists of staff and officers, a reference to a ride to Manalapan, pictures of riders (including some on the ground alongside the road!). From before the days of Facebook, Instagram, or blogs, take a look at a club publication from a different era.

Right-click the pictures and choose "view image" to see them larger.
