Self-Defence with a Bicycle, Italian style (1905)

This sequence of photographs from a 1905 edition of the Italian journal La Stampa Sportiva is clearly based on Marcus Tindal’s amusing and eccentric article Self-Protection on a Cycle (1901), which may in turn have been inspired by this letter published in the London Bicycle Club Gazette in 1900.
