Here is Nat King Cole singing On a Bicycle Built for Two. We would love to have a tandem bicycle for the Imagine Antigonish collection.
Meanwhile, here is Hughie Chisholm on his bicycle in the 1950s. It looks like a state-of-the art bicycle with hand brakes rather than pedal brakes. Was there a day when there were more bicycles than cars on Main Street? Can anyone identify the make of bicycle? This photo would be worth restoring, if only to get a fix on the exact location, by sharpening the background of homes and Cathedral. The Whidden store is a strong clue. Any other clues would be very welcome.
