DISRAELI DOCUMENTS

Lutetia cycle team - postcard

Lutetia cycle team - postcard scan 1 main image

Lutetia seems to be the Latin word for Paris - so presumably these French national club champions are classicists from the city of romance.

The derailleur shown is a three speed device eerily similar to a Simplex Champion de France - not a two speed like that described in French Patent # 739,662. Perhaps these five gentlemen are the very Champions of France that the derailleur is named for.
