During a routine reference request I came across this charming but unidentified image from the Ingatious Wadsworth Brock Collection. “Nace” Brock was a photographer in Asheville who specialized in portraiture and scenics.
Although a posed image of a mother and child, it did strike me that throughout the years many of one’s childhood memories (or perhaps just mine) center around a bicycle. Learning to ride, removing the training wheels, and the sense of freedom that cycling provides and the desire to then teach one’s own children how to ride.
The cycle continues – pun intended.
