Fay Reed with Bicycle

James Lafayette "Fay" Reed with his ordinary bicycle, better known now as a "penny-farthing" because of the large difference in size between the front and rear wheels. With matching knickers and shirt, a polka-dot bow tie and a smoker's cap, Reed was the epitome of the late 19th century bicycle craze.
