Below was an image printed over 100 years ago to promote the new suburban enclave of Ginter Park and the property of Major Lewis Ginter. I found it originally posted here at the Shockoe Examiner so go out and click on their link to give them some (il)legitimate traffic. The reason I am reposting it is because the trolley in the background reflects the public transport options available at the time (ah the progress we have made) and the two cyclists in the front who appear to be having a great time. I guess one day we may be able to get back to where we were 100 years ago (nostalgic retro-grouch coming out again). Also, next time you get the feeling to strap on you lycra and plastic dome cover consider riding in your bloomers instead, it’s much more posh.
