All of these guys but one are riding the original high front wheel bicycle (called a penny farthing bicycle.) They were dangerous as a small stone in the road could cause you to flip over the handlebars, and it was a long way down. The guy on the tricycle is riding the earliest machine I've ever seen designed to prevent this problem

Any guesses as to where this photo was taken?
