Superstition Mt. Museum carries Tastes & Treasures II in Gift Shop

Who has ridden a Boneshaker bicycle? Dave McElligot gift shop and event manager at Superstition Mt. Museum shows off the "Boneshaker" (bone-shaker). The term from 1869 refers to the first type of true bicycle with pedals. Boneshaker had an extremely uncomfortable ride, which was caused by the stiff wrought-iron frame and wooden wheels surrounded by tyres made of iron.

Tastes & Treasures II: A Storytelling Cookbook of Historic Arizona is a new book for their gift shop. Cathy and Tom Shumard delivered a box of books and took time to enjoy the many sights of the Superstition Mountain Historical Society Museum.
