Sundry Cycle Rides in June 1887
With the warmer summer days and nights, Walt and sister Amy range far and wide around Liverpool and beyond. Bold, St Helen’s, Rainhill, &Thatto Heath get a mention. On one occasion Amy had to be towed home with shoe laces she was so tired. Must have been strong laces! Interesting that she appears to be solo riding a James Starley Coventry Lever Tricycle patented in 1876. This was later manufactured on a large scale. ‘Bluebell Amy’ suggests Walt and Amy enjoyed teasing each other. The Bluebell was their local pub on the Warrington Road.
