Join the North Lanark Historical Society online on Wednesday, July 14th at 7:30 PM for their next Digital Speaker Series! They are happy to have the opportunity to host Doctor Glen Norcliffe, a professor in the Department of Geography at York University in Toronto, as he presents “The Seven Ages of the Bicycle: A Tour of the Huron Bicycle Museum.” With over 50 bicycles and tricycles, the Huron Bicycle Museum displays the evolution of the bicycle from 1817 to 1980, and contains Canada’s most comprehensive cycle collection!
Dr. Norcliffe is an active Professor Emeritus researching global production networks, geographical impacts of technological change, and regional change in global peripheries. He believes that the bicycle is arguably the artefact that best captures the geography of the modern age, as the first vehicle to offer people rapid movement, a utilitarian vehicle for daily transportation of people and goods, and an environmentally ‘green’ machine in a postmodern world.
