Penny farthing bicycle on display at Balmoral Castle
On display in the Carriage Hall was this penny farthing bicycle, so called because the large wheel is much bigger than the small. In the coinage used at the time, the penny coin was much bigger than the farthing, which was worth a quarter of its value. The penny farthing was at the height of its popularity in the 1880's and 1890's, but they are still manufactured in very small numbers today.
