Three-Track Tricycle

The Columbia Three-Track Tricycle cost $160 in 1883 and was the first to offer a “differential drive” gear that permitted both wheels to be driven equally and for ease of rounding corners. The picture of the Three-Track Tricycle is taken at Lodge corner Oulton Park Cheshire England. The white building on the right is the Lodge.
