Sourisseau Academy February 2017 Newsletter

Once upon a time, the only mechanical vehicles on our city streets (other than horse-drawn conveyances) were bicycles. Sourisseau Academy Board member Ralph Pearce, bike rider and antique bicycle restorer, takes us for a ride down an unpaved memory lane in the February 2017 Sourisseau Academy newsletter. The February 2017 Sourisseau news video (sponsored by Linda Lee Lester) explores the history of automobiles.
