Did you ever hear of a steam tricycle? In case you didn't,
here's a picture of one invented by L. G. Perreaux. A reporter
who wrote about it, in 1882, said Perreaux had worked 14 years to

in a paperback book, BIKES & TRIKES OF LONG AGO, which retails
for $1.25. Add 25 cents for handling and mailing. Order from
