I know Arch/Truss bars were also made after 1933, but the majority were earlier.
>Drop bar (Camel back)~ drops near saddle for ease of mounting. (not what I wish here)
>Arch (basically double arch)~ dual curved/bent top tubes
>Truss bar~ a straight or dropped upper top tube connected in some means with a lower curved or bent tube.

That old photo is very interesting. Sears and Roebuck "victor" made by Davis. Found this ad. When new the Victor was offered in a diamond frame. Photo shows a change in design. Very cool.
Old photos can tell the true story sometimes. (Middle bicycle, not King, victor) the king was the arch bar. Cool that's for sharing.
