Firehouse Velocipede Beach Towel





Image Size



Our luxuriously soft beach towels are made from brushed microfiber with a 100% cotton back for extra absorption.   The top of the towel has the image printed on it, and the back is white cotton.   Our beach towels are available in two different sizes: beach towel (32" x 64") and beach sheet (37" x 74").

Don't let the fancy name confuse you... a beach sheet is just a large beach towel.

Care Instructions

Machine wash cold and tumble dry with low heat.

Cool find! I could never ride it but I'll bet our son could! Love the put away look of this with stuff stored on the floor of the shed and who knows what back in the shadows. FA promo

Please choose (for the bottom and top - at approx. 8cm each) a light apricot color, that fits to the apricot color between ("AT THE" and "BEACH" - thank you). Iยดm irritated with the size of the towel. Is it something about 0,95-1m x 1,7-1,8m? Or had I better choosen the "sheet" size??

Artist's Description

Copyright 2009 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved This velocipede, a sleek, mid-19th century ancestor of the bicycle, known as a "boneshaker" for its rough ride, sits alongside an unseen antique fire truck in an open shed. The name velocipede comes from the Latin for "fast foot" and was coined in 1818 by a Frenchman, Nicephore Niepce in 1818, although it took almost 40 years for the term to enter into the generic vocabulary. This particular velocipede was likely used by the fire company as a messenger vehicle to spread fire alarms and fetch help. It must have taken some time to learn how to balance on one of these in order to be a proficient rider. This sepia photograph was shot in Mystic, Connecticut in August 2009. This painting has been FEATURED in too many groups to list. Thanks to the group hosts for their encouragement and support. velocipede, bicycle, antique, boneshaker, vehicle, mystic, connecticut, still life, photograph, sepia, vintage, rc dewinter, dewinter

About RC DeWinter

RC DeWinter

Hello and welcome to my portfolio on Pixels/Fine Art America. One of my major artistic goals, with appropriate images, is to create digital paintings that you wouldn't know were digital unless I told you. If I could paint in oils I would...alas my eyes don't work with my hand, so I create most of my art from photographs that I re-imagine. Few of my digital paintings resemble the original photographs very much when I am finished with my vision. Of course I also create work that is clearly digital as well. Here's a bit about me: RC...
