French bicycles

The French and their bicycles. Film clip recorded in France 1895 of factory workers leaving the factory, with a few that travel by bicycle with some background music.

It was shot in black and white and was originally titled "La Sortie des Usine Lumiere"(english translation "The Exit of the Factory Light".

At one point a dog gets exited by the bicycle and nearly knocks the bicyclist down. I suppose that mysterious attraction dogs have to rolling bicycles was as common then as it is today.
