A penny farthing in Cortland?

Walking back to work this afternoon I saw an unfamiliar sight. It was something I had only seen in pictures and didn’t know existed anymore.

A woman was riding a penny farthing bike, turning from Groton Avenue onto Homer Avenue.

I have since learned that you can still buy these and some people actually race them.

I would love to know who owns this and the story behind it. Anyone know?
