Bicycle Clothing "FASHION, as applied to the garb of the wheel-woman, offers but few radical changes for the spring season [1899]. Cycling clothing has passed the experimental stage and has now reached a point where improvement becomes difficult; for the perfect wheeling costume, if not already an accomplished fact, is as near perfection as most people ever expect to see it. The up-to-date suit, indeed, not-withstanding its simple exterior, represents more ingenuity and artistic skill than is exhibited in the most elaborate evening gown. Gathered from an infinite number of sources, every device that the fertile brain of the costumer can produce is applied to its practical advantage or made to contribute to its artistic improvement."

Here “Victorian” is not meant to indicate a specific culture, but rather references a time period and an aesthetic: the industrialized 19th century. Historically, this period saw the development of many key aspects of the modern world (mechanized manufacturing, extensive urbanization, telecommunications, office life and mass-transit), and steampunk uses this existing technology and structure to imagine an even more advanced 19th century, often complete with Victorian-inspired wonders like steam-powered aircraft and mechanical computers. Where did steampunk come from? In some sense, steampunk has existed since the 19th century.

Switching Gears - Steampunk Art And it all began because of a Sickle Sharpener. When I heard we had been given a Sickle Sharpener, lets say I was less than thrilled.
