Bicycle safety inspection by Andrew Bartels, 1960s

Dublin Core

Description

A group of children wait their turn to have their bicycles inspected by Optimist Club member Arnold Bartels, who kneels on the sidewalk to test the tire pressure of the first bicycle in line. The bicycle safety check was sponsored annually by the Optimist Club (Lovetinsky et al., p. 74; Walch, p. 110).

This image is most likely taken outside of the Coralville Elementary School. All participants wear coats, and two of the boys appear to have paper packets, likely a checklist for the inspector.
