Description:
A black and white photograph showing members of the Forest City Bicycle Club posed in front of the first bandstand in Victoria Park.
Notes:
The inscription reference to 'the guns' is to the three field guns donated to the park by John Carling. They are situated near the bandstand where the bicyclists are posing. One of the guns is partially visible, slightly to the right of centre.

The Forest City Bicycle Club was founded in 1882. By the turn of the century (1900) the original bandstand in Victoria Park had deteriorated and a new one was installed further north in the park. The Boer War Memorial now stands on the site of the original bandstand.

This photograph is undated and a guess has been made that it was taken ca. 1900.
