History Month September, 2017 Pop Culture Collectables & Cycling History display plus a Speaker/Forum Event

Lithgow Library celebrates history with display of photographs, collectables, vintage bicycles and bicycle racing memorabilia.

Bicycling riding has been a popular recreation, transport and competition event in Australia since cycles arrived on our shores in the 1870s, reaching the peak of their popularity in the 1960s and 70s. On display at the library for September are four vintage bicycles, two belonging to Ian Rufus and two racing cycles plus racing memorabilia belonging to long term Lithgow cycling enthusiast Clive Laing.

Also on display are some oversize images from the Local Studies photographic collection, including one that the library recently received a second original copy from a recent donation by the Lithgow Mercury, special because it has the entire group named on the reverse.

Please join us for the library’s next speaker event on 28th September, 2017, with guests Clive Laing, Geri Stieda and Ian Rufus, and bring your cycling stories to share.
