George Ralston

George Ralston & his high-wheeled bicycle, 1888
To Get Around?

Bob Steele, an early day photographer well-known in this area, is credited with having taken this picture of George Ralston in 1888 when Ralston was 19 years old. The high-wheeled bicycle was doubtless a prized treasure of that long ago day. Photo loaned by Mrs. Edward Wedo.
