Some wonderful photos from the turn of the century 1900 onwards

Well worth a look for bikes, trikes, cars and planes

Fantastic photos, cheers! One shows a Gobron-Brille car, and these had a "horizontally opposed" engine, but with the spark plugs in the centre of the cylinder and the pistons acting outwards on 2 crank rods with some strange connecting rods. A reputation for complexity and violent disintegration!
