i have only seen these in old movies and i now wonder how the driver sees where he is going

TexWisGirl said...

wow! i thought the same thing - my short, pedaling self wouldn't be able to see over that shade!

Will you take me for a ride, please. Tom The Backroads Traveller

Even at my age, that is a new one for me.

Love the rickshaw! Very very cool! Surely they didn't use it at the nursing home! Loved reading about the nursing home as well. Great post!

Brian King said...

Wow, that's vintage, alright! Very cool!

Roan said...

Now that's cool! I would love to take a ride, but not sure I would like give a ride. Thanks for linking up!

Well, that's an interesting contraption. Odd to see something like that in North Alabama.

Very interesting old bike. Like everyone else, I wonder how in the world the driver would see over the hood of the carrier.

Great photos and a very interesting post. Thanks for including the historical marker. I find myself reading these every time I see one around here :)

Deanna said...

Gosh it makes me wonder how the transporter could see over the top of the awning!! Great find!

Breathtaking said...

The rickshaw bike seems completely impractical, but it's an interesting find,and the history behind the Nursing Home made an interesting read.

Very art deco, I like the elaborate metal work.
