First post for me, I was hoping that some here could identify a bicycle, or any of them in this photo? This is a family photo, my great grandfather is far left hold the bicycle that is facing front (ideally thats the bicycle I’d like identified) The most prominent bicycle is being held (side profile) front and center. I believe that bicycle and the one my great grandfather is holding are the same (based on the head badge, fork and what I can see of the crank) thank you in advance and I hope you enjoy the photo.

Sir … I have deleted all of my foto-shopped
images of your initial posting in Entry #1.

After working nearly four hours to add clarity
and magnification to your foto (for the sole
purpose of helping you I.D. a bicycle in a ''family
photo'') … I find that you have no reaction to
my contribution. Not even a ''Wow''.

Fauber crank set? Anyone recognize the head badge? and it would seem many of the bikes have the same crank set and badge, did (if Fauber) supply to more than one manufacturer? Thanks

Great photo and thanks for sharing .
Might that be the club banner, Saint George, by the cyclist 3rd from left ? Also barely visible between the to gents far right. Where did Great Grand Dad live ?
It is unusual to see a bugler (seated 3rd from right) in a cycling photo at this late date. Club buglers, as I understand it, were more popular
and prevalent in the 1880's.
Sorry, I have no help on the bikes I.D.

These last two badge pics were magnified to 700 MB then cropped to fit the CABE image-size limit of 70-75 MB.

700 MB was no more clearer than 70 MB.
Believe It Or Not.

Yes sir Fauber supplied more than just one manufacturer if I'm not mistaken. Where was the photo taken? Very cool picture.

I would date this photo more mid to late 1890's. The bicycle your grandfather has as well as the other identical bikes appear to have steel rims. The bugler looks like a Civil War veteran. There is an interesting piece of bicycle equipment sitting on the shoulder of the man in back of the bugler. So as the club is riding down country roads and encounters an unfriendly, barking, and biting dog, does this piece of equipment get tossed overboard as the club rides safely away?

I should have stated this would have been in Philadelphia, my great grandfather lived from 1843-1922. At this stage of his life from what few pictures I have of him I would guess it was 1900, but that’s just a guess. The head badge definitely has a unique shape, I have to think someone will i.d. it based on the badge and fork. Thanks for all of you help and insight so far! Dave
