Jack Lawrence, the bicycle racing champion, owned a garage in Saco.

Lawrence and his family and friends are pictured outside the garage in about 1910.

A small sign on the building reads, "J.G. Lawrence Bicycles, Phonographs and Records."

The sale of bicycles could be combined with any number of other items.

Some of the frequent combinations were bicycles and sewing machines and bicycles and watches or clocks.

Some of the earliest bicycles were made or sold by carriage makers.
