Bullingdon on a Summer's Afternoon.
Coloured lithograph. 341 x 458mm (13 x 18"). Tear into upper margin and in title; damaged.
A sporting scene featuring a cricket match and horse race. The Bullingdon Club was founded over 200 years ago, and by 1875 it was considered "an old Oxford institution, with many good traditions". Originally it was a hunting and cricket club. In 1805 cricket at Oxford University "was confined to the old Bullingdon Club, which was expensive and exclusive". This foundational sporting purpose is attested to in the Club's crest. Printed locally by James Ryman (1840 - 1856; fl.), print publisher.
