The Boston Cycle Company was founded in 1897 and originally sold both new and second hand bicycles made by other manufacturers including Victor, Columbia, and Rambler, along with a variety of parts and accessories. It soon began to produce its own models, the Algonquin, Bellingham, and Number Seven. Public records and contemporary newspaper advertisements/articles suggest that the company went out of business around 1903. This catalog features men’s and ladies’ Algonquin models, fittings, hangers, and sprockets.
