|This military cyclist belonged to one of The Cheshire Regiment's Volunteer Battalions. Unlike some of the other
cyclists featured in other galleries this Private's bicycle is official military issue. Note the special brackets on the
bicycle's frame to hold his Lee-Metford rifle. Also note the brass muzzle cover on the end of the rifle's barrel. An
uncommon image by a rare 19th Century female photographer.
