Phoenix history: Bike shop owner Charles Gittner died

Pioneer Cycle Co.What a great piece of history, Vivia Strang, thanks for sharing!

Mr. Gittner opened the Pioneer Cycle Co., one of the first bicycle shops in Arizona Territory. He hunted and prospected with the Maricopa Tribe, homesteaded a 360- acre parcel of land, built a brick house, and developed a granite quarry near South Mountain.
