Retro Sports in London

Expect bakewell battles and umbrella jousting at today's event The Chap Olympiad as it gets under-way this afternoon. It's an annual event of true British eccentricity so we thought it was a superb opportunity to showcase some of our favourite vintage sporting prints of finely dressed ladies and dapper gentlemen.

Snow Walking.

Anon. Battledoor and Shuttlecock, 1871.

Louis Dupont, Landau 425.

Thulstrup, T. Curling. 1886.

Anon. Salmon Fishing, 1871.

Hal Hurst. Cycling in Hyde Park, 1896.

Cruikshank, George. The Close of the Battle or the Champion Triumphant, 1811.

Let the games begin!
