Cyclists at Wolfeton House, c. 1895
An unmounted, glossy silver print showing a large number of cyclists, mostly women, arranged in front of an ivy-clad wall. The women’s clothes date the photograph to the mid to late 1890s. A pencilled inscription verso in a period hand reads: ‘Bicycle meet at Wolfeton House.’
Wolfeton House is a Tudor-Elizabethan manor house in Dorset.
Condition: the print has sustained diagonal creases at its upper left and lower right corners but is otherwise in good condition, with excellent tonal range.
