These wonderful posters for images where the bicycle was used to advertise almost any product or to poke fun at the current trend in politics or religion. Victorian trade cards of the 1890’s frequently had bicycle or cycling image when selling everything from meat extracts to clothing, thread and sewing machines just to name a few. Judge and Puck were both American political satire magazines that often tackled the era’s touchiest subjects.
