Old photos of 19th Century and earlier bikes

I need some photos of old pennyfarthings, bone shakers, safety bikes etc. from the 1800s on for a project on the History of Material Culture.

I would also love a few of old lamplighters or tall bikes. Links or images would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

This is the library of congress's online collection. You will find a ton of great stuff if you search it. I tend to get lost in there.

EDIT: BTW Baltimore transplants in TX are the greatest ever.

This isn't exactly what you asked for but it's an old family photo of a guy on an old bike of some kind
I don't know what the hell a bone shaker, tooth knocker or pennyfarthing is

He sure must have been proud of that bike to take a photo with it, though.
What kind of bike is it? Any nickname?
