Minting, the Trick Rider

Mike Wilson, Local Author and Historian

The Sketch, 6th September, 1899

The Sketch used a very similar illustration to show Minting, the trick rider, descending the spiral track on one wheel in the West Spa Gardens, Bridlington Quay.

This photograph, however, shows him running down the track, and was found in an album originating with an old Bridlington family.
