Abstract:
"One dandy rides forward on a 'hobby', see British Museum Satires No. 13399, full-face, legs straddled, elbows akimbo. Another rides right to left, leaning back, just avoiding the former's back wheel, but striking the pole of his machine against the chest of a pedestrian who has tried to cross the road, and who screams with raised arms. In the background a third dandy (right) rides with bent knees and the back foot pointing upwards; a fourth (left) coasts with horizontal legs."--British Museum online catalogue.
