This is a photo of Curtis at the Waterworks, by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Taken in 1994 by an unknown photographer who later gave the framed print to us. The bike is an 1880’s Columbia Expert. Note the radial spoke lacing. This was a “go fast” machine, Curtis says this was a great riding bike that he put a lot of miles on.
