Flashback Friday: Seeing Double

By Alex Chronopoulos

You’ll get the best views of the City from up there!

This photo from the Toronto Archives dated 1934 shows a young woman (who oddly resembles Maggie Gyllenhaal) preparing to gallivant around Toronto on her double high-wheel tricycle.

Although the manufacturer is unknown, it bears a striking resemblance to Queen Victoria’s Starley's "Royal Salvo" as seen here.

Keep calm, and cycle on.
