Bike riding in 1891; 124 years ago. My sense of reality is forever altered.
David showed a few of the hundreds of recently discovered Kodak negatives of Allen and Sachtleben’s European and Asian adventure including Greece, Turkey, and Persia. These images are astounding to me. David has done a tremendous amount of work to pull these images together, get them cleaned up, and have them digitally clarified and reproduced. The detail and visual story is beyond words for me.
I took a few photos of the projected slides David was showing. My bad photos don’t do the images justice.
Hearing David discuss the details of each photo was a highlight of the year for me.
David is working on getting the images on display in the Boston area. I hope to help him make it happen. This piece of cycling history is so important.
