‘Treadleys’ (Pushbikes) in Australia.

Image

Pretty untidy lot we were.
Just put the old tredley (or “treadly“) anywhere along the kerb while we go in and watch some American B Grade Movie at the local cinema..
But we didn’t lock our bikes back then, did we?
We actually cared and looked out for each other.

And some Aussies depended on their pushbike to pursue a livelihood like shearing.

In Adelaide the Toffs had the opportunity to purchase a Three Speed Bike. Bloody Toffs.
These two pipe smoking chums admire the magnificent cycle.
But hang on is the bloke on the right attempting to urinate on his chum or his bike. We will never know.
