Period: First quarter 20th Century
This group of burly, moustachioed men are the Royal Marine Artillery Tug-o'-War team. In this charming, sepia photograph they're seen posing proudly behind piles of thick rope and an impressively large trophy.
Nicely mounted in a simple oak frame, the inscription states that the competitions were won in 1899. This photograph is a fun little insight into the more light-hearted history of the British Army.
The condition remains generally good; there are a few small marks to the frame and couple of patches of dirt behind the glass but the image remains very presentable.
The picture is 45cm wide, 36cm high and 2cm deep.
