The 1890s saw the second great wave of public fascination with the bicycle. Pneumatic tires had just been invented and adopted for bicycles--they made the ride so much smoother. Bicycle-related material began to appear. People sang songs with bicycle sheet music, and built homes with built-in bicycle rooms for storage of the vehicles. In 1896 Rochester's Democrat & Chronicle newspaper published an "art supplement" on tougher cardstock in the form of a bicycle race game complete with board, teetotum (spinner), and little cyclist playing pieces all to cut out.
