In the 1870’s, the first metal-framed bicycles were introduced. These high-wheeled bikes were eventually called Penny-farthings because of their different wheel sizes. In the day, a bike could have cost as much as six months wages.
In Great Britain, it is considered lucky for a bride to see a chimney sweep on her wedding day. Legend is told that in the year 1066, King William of Britain was saved by a chimney sweep, who pushed him out of the way of a runaway horse and carriage. As a reward, the king invited the chimney sweep to his daughter’s wedding. Ever since, it has been considered to be good luck to have a chimney sweep at a wedding or special event!
