Hell Yes

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.
