Custodial history

Scope and content

Item is a mounted albumen print on paper manufactured by Kodak and likely taken using the Kodak No. 1 camera, which came pre-loaded with film. When all 100 exposures had been made by the consumer, the entire camera was sent back to the Kodak company for prints to be made, and the camera to be reloaded. The Kodak No. 1 produced circular snapshots.
The image depicts a man seated on a horse, surrounded by onlookers with bicycles. Inscription on the reverse reads "Cavalry [illeg] Park West".
