Photo of the very well preserved  Penny-farthing bicycle which was donated to the Museum by the Locke family.
Embossed  on the Frame are the  Letters BSA which stands for the Birmingham Small Arms a company who manufactured these bicycles in 1880.
The bicycle was once owned by Bert Locke a favorite Rushworth character who rode this  bike for many years at Carnivals and  wood days in Rushworth.
The bicycle  is placed on display [Weather Permitting } on the footpath in front of the Museum when the Museum is open,
and it is a wonderful exhibit and a interesting draw card  in attracting  visitors into the Museum.
 
So the next time you are  in Rushworth stop for a while and visit the Museum and view all the other exhibits which are on display.
  Looking forward to many visitors in 2010.
