This is a bit similar to my last post, but I couldn’t resist sharing it. Archive.org has a catalog of bicycle components and accessories that was printed in 1900. I’m not surprised that there is a whole page just for Brooks saddles and they look pretty damn close to what they look like now (page 37.) The real shocker was when I got to page 55 and realized that they were selling acetylene gas lanterns for bicycles. See it all right here.

What are your plans when they invent the 650 dollar bill? My plan is to head down to my local Criterion Shop* and pick this up. “Essential Art House: 50 Years of Janus Films” is exactly what it sounds like. It’s basically worth it just for “Jules and Jim.”
