~ Road Book of Boston and Vicinity for Bicyclers, Riders and Drivers, Charles A. Underwood, Ed., 1893"The only boarding stable for Bicycles in Boston"Note: I love the way it takes human ideas and language a while to catch up to new technology. This is an ad for a “boarding stable” ( historically a place to leave your horses) for bicycles where you can “put your wheel up at the Inn” and it can be “cleaned and cared for” while you do your business in town.

Personally I like to imagine all the bicycles having tea while they wait, but I’m weird that way….
