First order secures agency. / PRICE $12.00 / C. A. COEY & CO. / D-1424 Michigan Avenue / CHICAGO ILLINOIS" postcard with an enlarged black & white illustration of the attachment on back, mailed 1908 to the Romeo Electric Light Plant at Romeo Michigan. Astonishing illustration: a man, woman & child each on their own bicycle riding a railroad track, stabilized to the rail they are not on by the device. [And, hopefully, not encountering a train coming from the other direction! The postcard never stated the detachment time!] This device ostensibly made a smooth paved road out of a railroad track, or so they thought. By showing a family on an outing, the ad is essentially saying "Safe enough for your entire family." By showing a woman riding a bicycle not in a public place and with her husband, she is not being depicted as the loose woman some of her day might have thought. No other offers or displays of this advertising when we searched the internet; all we could find were black & white ads that appeared in a few magazines & journals of the time. So the inventors did try to make money from the invention, but evidently their efforts did not last long. Surprised? We venture to say that the publicity of a few unfortunate accidents put this bad idea to a well-deserved rest. Hopefully not many horrific family outings resulted. $180.00 bi(c)ar(u)fg(c)
