Definitely around the 1891-1910 timeframe with the shaft drive; Michelin pneumatic tires and spoon brake; but don't recognize the headbadge.

Great guesses ... the time period is correct and the bike is a 1899 Peugeot!

I saw the lion/arrow/wheel head badge before I scrolled down to your answer. so it was obviuosly a Peugoet to me at first sight.
Heck, chances of a French bike being a Peugeot is the same as the chances you will see Wildebeest in an African safari.
I guess I could consider Peugeots as Wildebeest of French bikes. Surely not the prettiest most of the time, but tough and there's "bazillions" of them made!

Uhmmm. I guess there's bevel gears and a shaft to drive that "chainless bike"?
