Nadine's Diary, "Riding a Bicycle"

In school--Wednesday Oct. 3. 94.  Went with Miss Sinclair sketching out to Sagers Pond.  The Art teacher gave me his sketching stool to sit on and I up set when I went to sit down on it. They all laughed and Mr. Wright said I must not be used to riding a bicycle*.  Mr. Holz came to our table in the evening to board.
Lover's Lane on Sager's Lake, Valparaiso, Indiana 
c. 1894, from
*An interesting issue of The Indiana Historian magazine is devoted to the early days of bicycles, the mid to late 1890s.
