1936 French SWB Recumbent

The question is, when was was the first recumbent made?  This is the earliest bent of the short wheel base (SWB) variety I have seen, by a Mr. Albert Raymond.  I know of an earlier long wheel base bent invented by Jarvis in the U.S., from 1902, but this is the earliest SWB I have found.  That it was from France should be no surprise, since Charles Mochet was making recumbents in France about that time period.

1886 MASA Slingshot?

Well, if its not a MASA Slingshot from 1886, at least its a tadpole trike with similar general appearance.
