The Pigeon Fancier

Pigeon fanciers (keepers) are growing in number in the UK and the USA. There are over 50,000 of them in Britain, most of whom also race their birds. The Queen is a pigeon fancier with over two hundred birds on the Sandringham Estate which regularly race other (non-royal) birds. She’s most welcome to those that live in my garden and poop on my car. Our photograph, from the early 1900s, shows a young man in more humble surroundings.
