Bicycle Face

Did you know that there was such a phenomenon?

Neither did I. Incredible what people thought back in Emmett’s time about the effects of ‘newfangled contraptions’ on the public at large.

The article about Bicycle Face got my attention because of something I had read about Emmett when he was in law school at Stetson, namely this:

"He failed utterly." Source: Stetson Weekly Collegiate, Dec. 5, 1903.

“He failed utterly.” Source: Stetson Weekly Collegiate, Dec. 5, 1903.

Maybe Emmett didn’t get ‘Bicycle Face,’ but perhaps ‘Wire Fence Face?’ Ouch.
