Victorian multitasking!

Man on strange bicycle. Linley Sambourne illustration for Punch

An excellent example of Victorian multitasking! Linley Sambourne (English, 1844-1910), illustration for Punch magazine (UK), 1869.

“Call it a toy, indeed! Why our ingenious friend, Glimmer, has a run before breakfast, and grinds his coffee and churns his butter with the greatest ease”.

Reminds me of a Heath Robinson invention.
