Mabel and her bike

Columnist/Blogger Marc Beauchamp posted this interesting image of his maternal grandmother Mabel Frisbie and her bike in Redding circa 1910 in anticipation of a presentation about local bicycling.
Mabel Frisbie1I wondered if I could clean it up. I’m not sure I added any clarity to the subject, but here’s what I ended up with. It was fun work, and I learned a few things.

It starts at 1:30 pm, and will feature Anne Thomas of Shasta Living Streets. I hope to be there if I’m not working. Thanks much to Marc Beauchamp for sharing the image.
