These photos are amazing! Cycle Smithy’s been accumulating vintage photographs from the 1890’s of the old Lake Street Chicago Schwinn factory. This is Schwinn bicycle production at its infancy, taken within the first few years of the operation opening, way before Waterford.

I can’t get over how incredible these photos are. See for yourself at Cycle Smithy!
