Flying Bicycle (1919)

We read the predictions of futurist Mr. Bois in a September 26, 1909 New York Times article about the flying bicycles of the future. Just ten years later the September 23, 1919 Janesville Daily Gazette (Janesville, Wisconsin) ran this picture of a "flying bicycle." If only it worked.
