Over the years and across the miles, tricycle riding we go! Check out this cute collection of vintage snapshots of kids and their beloved three-wheelers.

Roger on tricycle (1941)

“I am on my tricycle in front of our home at 531 N. Rockford Avenue, in Rockford, Illinois. My father probably took this photo around August 1941, when I was five years old. My brothers (twins) had been born in June. I had been sent off to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin while they were born. I figure that my cousins Pearl and Punk, who rented my grandfather’s farm, gave me this expired license plate. I must have been proud of it.”
