Who? When? Where?
Can you suggest where or when this photograph of the start of
a race might have been taken? Some of the other
photos from this collection were taken at the Edinburgh
University Playing Fields at Myreside.
Here is another photo from the same collection, this one
taken at the end of a race, showing the competitors looking
rather more exhausted.
I see some similarities between the athletes in these two photos, but I
don't think it is the same race. There are lots of spectators in the
photo of the start of the race and none to be seen at the finish:
and I don't see anybody in black shorts at the start of the race.
