Cycling was as popular in the late nineteenth century (when this photograph was taken) as it is now. This happy band of cyclists is the ‘I.O.G.T.’ in Doncaster. We’ve not been able to find out what the I.O.G.T. was …. or is. I assume its main purpose wasn’t cycling, as the sashes seem too formal for such as informal activity. Perhaps it was a society of some sort which had a cycling group as one of its activities. If you know what the initials stand for, please let us know.
