The Ha'penny-Farthinger

In the 19th century Penny-Farthing bicycles were quite fashionable. Nowadays, one can rarely see them around.
I spotted this guy in temple bar on 22 January 2012, just before the Trad Fest began.

Later on that day, I saw him again, this time near Ha'penny Bridge. It's funny that the only things left in Ireland from the good auld penny are a bridge and the amusing bicycle, whereas the coin has been gone for long.
