I saw this antique metal sign at the Mid-Ohio Insulator Show last month. The collector that offered this one up for sale explained that back in the landline telegraph era dispatch riders used bicycles to deliver telegrams. 100 years ago just like today bikes were a great way to get around town.
I would have loved to have this cool old sign to hang in my bicycle garage but as one of only four or five examples known to exist the seller was asking $600 for the sign. I guess I'll just enjoy my digital photograph.
