YOUNG CRICKET PLAYER HOLDING A CRICKET BAT IN TORONTO, CANADA

This original cabinet card photograph features a boy wearing his cricket uniform and holding a bat. This young athlete is identified on the reverse of the photo as Edwin English. He was photographed by N. Bogart of Toronto, Canada. Most Americans know very little about cricket. Cricket is a “bat and ball” team sport originating in England and played in over 100 countries around the world. Cricket can be traced back to Tudor times in the 16th century. In regard to this photograph, it is interesting to note that the tradition of photographing children in their sport uniforms continues today. Many parents of children participating in sports buy individual and team photographs of their children. Some things don’t change. Note the tiny chip on the left side bottom corner of the image (see scans). Overall this photograph is in good condition.
