Image shows a man identified as Joseph E. Leaming standing in front of a painted woodland backdrop holding his bicycle. The bike is very early with a front tire that comes up to Leamings chest and a small rear tire that is about knee high. The seat and handlebars are clearly visible.

Leamings is posed with one hand on his hip holding a white low crowned visor cap while the other supports the bicycle. He wears a dark 6-button military looking jacket with matching kickers and knee socks.

Image has good clarity and contrast but is toned from age. Card edges show moderate to heavy wear. Upper left corner is creased. Bottom of the card is marked CLINEDINST 477 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE, WASHINGTON, D.C.

Top of reverse has a period ink inscription “J. E. LEAMING, CHIEF SIGNAL OFFICE, WASHINGTON D.C.”

Joseph E. Leaming was born in New Jersey on January 21, 1854. He served in the Office of the Chief of Engineers as well as the Signal Office. He died in Washington, D. C. on February 2, 1917 and is buried in Cold Spring Presbyterian Cemetery in Cape May, New Jersey.  [ad]
