Tricycle Photos:  1930-1950's

The 1930's really marked the first time that tricycle manufacturers offered frame designs that went beyond simplicity and functionality.  The Art Deco and Streamlined Modern design movements played a major role in tricycle design of the 1930's and 1940's.  The tricycles of this period that show streamlined designs to their frames and fenders are some of the most sought after tricycles today.  Not only did manufacturers use Streamlined Modern design, but some very famous designers of the time were responsible for the new look of tricycles in the 1930's era.

      Later in this period Machine Age and Space Age designs started to appear on tricycles.  The Machine Age brought about designs and materials that had previously been used very little.  The Space Age saw some manufacturers playing on the space-race craze with tricycles designed like rocket ships or models named with Space Age names.
