This photograph shows a woman with a baby in a carriage and a man on a bicycle that has been uniquely adapted for rail use in Bourbon County, Kansas. The bicycle attachment may be the one manufactured by the C. A. Coey Co. of Chicago, Illinois, and frequently advertised in railroad magazines at that time as a way to avoid the dirt and mud of unpaved roads and streets.

Date: Between 1900 and 1919
