Book Description

Cabinet photograph of a crowd gathered before a balloon ascent, unidentified building in background. Sepia, bit of fade, some mild spotting, slight loss to image bottom right. Possibly, from Lydd in Kent [it came frome a Kent collection], where there was a balloon observation school in the late nineteenth century. The crowd are not military, but mixed, men and women civilians, their clothes dating them to c. 1890 - 1910.
