Early Cycle Lighting

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

The first cyclists took to the roads long before battery-powered lamps were invented, but they had to light their way just as we do today. Before they set off after dark, cyclists from the 1870s right through to the early years of the Second World War in some places, had to spend a long time preparing an oil or acetylene gas-powered lamp. This is an illustrated history of this interesting technology in Britain, Europe and America.
