    A great capture and an instant Favourite! We call these old bicycles “penny farthings” after two coins in common usage at the time of its invention. The farthing became obsolete when I was a young child and a generation later the penny was replaced by the new penny which had a higher value, but was much smaller in size.

  • Thanks for the great info…how interesting!
