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.
