Velocipedes and the Post-office (1869)

Velocipedes and the Post-office

The Cardiff Postmaster has just received from the General Post-office a beautifully finished three-wheeler velocipede with the view of testing its adaptability for the country postmen. In a district like that of Cardiff a good many rural postmen are employed, who travel on an average between twenty and thirty miles a day all weathers; so that, if this new machine answers the purpose, a vast amount of dreary work will be saved, as well as the delivery letters being greatly accelerated.

The Leeds Mercury, June 8, 1869
