Throwback Thursday: Frazier Cycle Company, Christmas Window Display

A #ThrowbackThursday all dressed up for the holidays!

Who doesn’t love a good window display, especially around the holidays? This week’s #ThrowbackThursday post pays homage to just that. In the winter of 1922 the Frazier Cycle Company in Lincoln, NE put together a display for it’s Christmas shoppers. Flanked by Christmas trees, Santa Claus rides a bicycle under paper streamers. Filled with bicycles, tricycles, a scooter, wagon, bicycle seats, and flashlights, that would hopefully find their way under trees come Christmas Eve. The Frazier Cycle Company was located at 231 S. 11th Street in downtown Lincoln, and according to the Lincoln City Directory, 1918, the owners of Frazier Cycle Co. were Willis A., William B., and Clifford Frazier.

    My great grandfather and grandfather were the owners, my father had many fond memories of the business. The company also sold motercycles very early, around 1915. I have more pictures.
