A Closer Look: Bicycle Rider Backs–Tri-tire #2

Click to enlarge.

Wheels within wheels characterize Bicycle’s second “Tri-tire” design, used between 1905 and 1927. These cards are fairly light blue, so I didn’t want to jack the colors up to high. The wing motif implies speed, but more curious is the six-pointed star at the center. Perhaps it was some kind of hub design from the period.
