The Rescued Photos of Allen & Sachtleben

at the Main Library

In 1890, two American college graduates set off to circle the globe on new-fangled "safeties" (the prototype of the present-day bicycle), armed with another remarkable novelty: the compact Kodak film camera. Miraculously, over 120 years later, hundreds of photographs they took of Asia Minor during their second year on the road have come to light. Join bicycle historian David V. Herlihy (author of Bicycle: the History and The Lost Cyclist) as he shows a selection of this trove and recounts their historic journey.
