Old Bicycle Articles on Flickr

I am working at an older ladies house and she always is out asking us questions like what we do or if we had any hobbies - I said I really like old bicycles and she said she had something for me. At the end of the day she brought out a very big album ( about 2-3 inches thick) that her husband did- he cut out any bicycles articles he saw and did a album of them. I think the oldest is around 1959 - 1976. It is really neat to see articles of what wild bikes people made and things they did on bikes! I really hope some people enjoy this.
They are on Flickr.com and if you search for vmax4coco under the people search, all the articles I have scanned will be on there. I have so many more to do and I will try every 2 days to get more articles on there.
Please let me know if they are interesting - I just would like to know all this time, is worth it!!
Thanks,
Doug

Nice set of articles, thanks for doing that. I find the "tall bikes" interesting, funny how things keep coming back
