Looking for old cycling photos, any suggestions?

I'm interested in photographs from the glory days of track riding and fixed gear riding in America, specifically, the 1890's "bike boom" years. Preferably, they should be public domain photos. Anyone have any favorite places or suggestions?

have you trued searching google?
or ask at your local track, surely there must be a museum somewhere or at least an archive of the photos.
ask around at the tracks and i'm sure you will find somebody pleased to help, and able to share stories etc

The best sources will always be libraries and photo archives.

This photograph was taken in Springfield, Mass in 1886,
- from the book, "Wheels and Wheeling, The Smithsonian Cycle Collection" 1974
