An advertising card from when people appreciated hand made archery equipment. No training wheel, gizmos, releases, or sights. There is no date on the image but I suspect that late 18th century or early 19th century would not be too far off. Apparently javelin throwing was in vogue at the time as well. Now we have television, video games, and the internet. I feel fortunate to live at a time when primitive technology is making a resurgence. We felt very alone 20 years ago doing these things but an upside to the world-wide-web is connecting people with so much to teach each other.
