An early cycling event
with a large number of Ordinaries
A carte-de-visite showing a meeting of early cycling enthusiasts. The outdoor portrait shows at least twenty young men posed with their penny-farthings or high-wheelers (more properly called an Ordinary).
According to an inked inscription verso in a period hand, the man marked with an X is 'Grandpa,' only I can't find anyone in the portrait who is marked with an X.
Photographer and location unidentified.
Condition: The print's tonal range could perhaps be a little punchier, and it presents one or two small blemishes; it is otherwise in fine condition. The mount is clean, firm and solid.
