However these are not the earliest DHBC prizes that have recently surfaced. The great-great grand daughter of DHBC founder JC "Charlie' Paris (1879-1950), Julie Peruch, sent me some pics. The prize was from the Newtown Bicycle Club. JC Paris would probably have been a member of the Marrickville Bicycle Club in 1901. Paris was part of a group of M'ville BC members who broke away in 1908 to form the DHBC.
