The Cyclist's Christmas

Cyklistens Jul 1896
Saw this in the window of an antique shop the other day. 'Cyklisten' [The Cyclist] was an incredibly popular magazine around the turn of the last century when the bicycle was booming all over the planet.

This is a cover for the magazine for the Christmas 1896 edition. Quite lovely. Didn't see a price. Didn't dare ask.
