One from the Museum of London:

P6064930 by TJ Clarion, on Flickr

Although it's a bit hard to see, as I was shooting in low light, the only thing moving fast enough to have motion blur in the photo is, of course,the bike
Early evidence of the American industrial invasion: Goodrich and - that is a Domino's Pizza sign on the horse waggon, isn't it?  :D
An ungovernable laughter, a joyous agitation which makes the summer stretching before you seem like an unrolling canvas on which you might draw those first rude pure strokes that are free. (Capote)

Today's National Library of Ireland flickr photo is rather splendid.

On a bicycle made for three by National Library of Ireland on The Commons, on Flickr

Splendid photo, indeed, but two details struck me:

1) The front chain is a bit slack,

2) Judging by the huge chainring, the machine was probably designed to ride at incredible speed!
