Cycle Camera Corps

30 April 1898

This was the first run of the EPS Cycling Camera Corps.  The Committee announced:

"All Members and friends will be welcome to attend the runs [of the EPS Cycling Camera Corps] which will be of a very reasonable length to enable ladies to take part in them, and will be through as picturesque country as the proposed Committee can select."  

"Each Member, it is hoped will bring a camera - either hand or stand - but of course this is not compulsory, although it is hoped that the main object for which the corps is being formed will receive due attention  viz., the carrying of a camera by means of the cycle."

The first run was described as:

" not  of great length, as doubtless most Members will not be in the best of muscular training by the end of April - viz., Saturday, 30 April."

The run was about 20 miles  Members met at Craigleith Station, Queensferry Road, at 2.30 pm, cycled to Queensferry and back via Kirkliston. Tea was served at Queensferry.
