16 April 1985 Germany-Berlin
For the Youth charity stamps

Same time to the previous post, history of German bicycle, Berlin post issued these 4.  Featuring German made machine only, starting from bone shaker by Büssing-Rad in 1868 to 1925 Opel-Rennard racing bike.  Lady’s bike by Jaray-Rad in 1925 looks very odd and I cannot work out how it was peddaled even if  I see picture of it.  It seems most of gentlemen cyclists had moustache in Germany.

昨日の切手と同時にベルリンで発行された自転車の歴史シリーズ。こちらのセットでは1868年のボーン・シェイカー(木のフレームに鉄を巻いた車輪で、名前からしてすごく乗り心地が悪そう)から1925年のレース用自転車まで。1925年のレディース用自転車は、写真を見てもまだどうやってこいだのか謎です。ドイツ人男性はこの時代、みんな髭をたくわえていたようですね。
