I love all of these bike shop names, but National Cycle Works is the best! I am also intrigued by the fact that the GPO Bicycle Repair existed right there. Must have been a lot of bike riding printer workers.

As a daily e-bike commuter and member of the EVA DC club for electric vehicles it's not surprising to see the EV listing from 100 years ago.
A good read/listen on the historical aspect of fuels and all transportation vehicle types, including a large section on the bicycle manufacturering patent controls from that era, is the book Internal Combustion by Edwin Black. Available in a nice hardback version for cheap online. Long read/listen but well worth it from many perspectives.

I would guess GPO is General Post Office
