Just Riding My Bike

A couple of boys riding in the Mansfield, PA Fabulous 1890s Weekend Parade a couple of years ago. Mansfield is the site of the first football game played "under the lights" in 1892.

I was immediately struck by the boys' clothes, especially the boy in the foreground. I expect him to rise up with a newspaper in his yelling, "Get yer paper! Read all about it!"

That's really cool. The sepia and the clothing give it a great old timey look. But the bike and the scooter contrast that. It all keeps the eye looking around for more.

What a perfect shot for sepia. I love their clothes.

Toys have changed over the decades, but the smile on a child's face will always embody bliss. Love the photo!

With the hats, the 1890s comes alive. I know the bicycle is not a period piece, but it looks like the 1890s as well due to the aging effects of sepia work so well here!

Great shot! i have to agree on the clothes! and i do know about the first football game under the lights! I don't know if this is still the case, but when my husband went to Mansfield high school they did not have football.

Thanks for all the comments. Deb, Mansfield High still does not have football, and sadly, neither does Mansfield University. They have switched to a different type of football, whose name escapes me at the moment.
