The engraving shows a light and compact velocipede carriage of German invention, calculated for easy and comfortable riding and capable of carrying light baggage. The rider 'sits in an easy chair above the forward axle, and grasps the guiding handles attached to this axle. The feet rest upon pedals connected by rods with cranks on the rear axle. By the alternate movement of the pedals the carriage is propelled. A lantern is carried in front, and a canopy covers the head of the rider.
