Written by a seasoned collector of transport memorabilia, this book chronicles the origin and evolution of cycle lamps. During the nineteenth century, keen cyclists realized how essential they were to cycle in the dark - both to light the way ahead and alert other road users. Manufacturers were quick to respond to demand, and soon a wide range of simple lamps was available, usually fuelled by oil. This study follows their development as they quickly grew in sophistication, their makers trying to out-do one another in style and efficiency.
