Leeds Crossgates Show 1904

United Kingdom

Cyclists valiantly pedal round a grass track and horses are taken through their paces at what was clearly a lively day in front of a large Leeds crowd. The cameraman is better placed for the horses than for the cycling - which is partly obscured by a group of officiators. One young rider, carrying his rosette in his mouth, keeps his mount still for just long enough to tip his hat for the camera.
