THE PENNY FARTHING

IN THE PRISONER: As well as being the symbol/motif of The Village (McGoohan stated that it was a good "symbol of progress"), the bicycle can also be seen many times in Village-based scenes, with several extras riding round The Village on them, and one of the bicycles is also a permanent resident in The Green Dome (Number Two's office).
IN REALITY: The Penny farthing bicycle was first developed between 1870 and 1878, and became a very popular mode of transport until 1892 when the safety bicycle, a style that we all now use, came into production.
