An interesting historical document. The number of bicycle sold by Husqvarna Weapons Factory from 1896-1944.
Funny... a weapon manufacturer selling bicycles. But Husqvarna was founded in 1689 and focused on weapons from the start. Over the course of a few centuries they branched out to produce bicycles, but also sewing machines, kitchen equipment, motorcycles and chainsaws.
Interestingly, sales peaked during both world wars.
