I smiled in delight seeing this, Nordog, as my Father was born in the 1800s and his school teacher rode of one these to work each day in the summer. (And apparently caused great amusement to his students as he was apt to tumble off frequently!).
Beautiful! Firstly, just think of the art-work that went into that ad. No digi-cameras then. The Penny-Farthings were great - silly, but great. Not my style Nordog but Ed the Uni rider loves such things and he knows one or two that ride the modern equivalent.
Such a good find there our Nordog. I am wondering how on earth they got up there to eventually ride it.

Don't know what they use to get on board now but apparently it was common to use stumps over here.
