Victor's Bicycles Ad From 1890

In 1881 Albert H. Overman moved to Hartford, CT and formed the Overman Wheel Company, contracting with the Ames Manufacturing Company, an ammunition, arms, and sewing machine company in Chicopee Falls, MA.

The company became one of the most well known bicycle companies in the U.S. In 1885 Overman made the famous Victor bicycles, seen here.

This ad was scanned from an original 1890 Harper's New Monthly magazine.
