Let’s ride like it’s 1898

A neat look into the past from Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.




Using old photos with captions, this short video recreates the experience of a group bike ride on May day in 1898. The ride begins at the Jefferson Hotel on Franklin Street and ends at the Lakeside Wheel Club, currently Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Highlights along the way include Monument Avenue, Brook Turnpike, and the homes of Lewis Ginter.
