-The Trishaws in Singapore came into use in 1914. These were termed as "pedal rickshaws". Trishaw is also known as a cycle rickshaw, velotaxi, or a pedicab. It is driven manually by the driver like a cycle. -Black & white pic by Martin Liew

Wow, I'd love to be your passenger (as long as you're doing the pedaling). It's like a sidecar for a bicycle!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm so happy you did because it was a chance for me to discover yours--a fantastic place of life and wonder! Saw rickshaws like this on a trip to India and thought they were crazy, as in crazy good. I loved seeing children bouncing around in the back of them!

The Cottage Cheese said...

This looks like fun, and a great workout! You've given me a giggle, picturing the 5 pugs riding along in the back ;)

The Haute-Shopper said...

Fascinating they still have these around! Rickshaws were banned from so many countries, but then again, this version is much more humane. They have modern-day versions of these throughout Europe (mostly students riding these as a part-time job).

Loved those photos from the jewelry shop by the way. Hong Kong was the same way... people always invested in gold and I was actually given gold coins on my birthday occasionally as they wouldn't lose their value.
