lexington-fox-hunt

I was a little surprised when I saw that this postcard was a depiction of a Fox Hunt taking place in Lexington, Kentucky. I was certain I had obtained a British postcard! Upon doing a little investigation I discovered that this card depicts a scene from the  Iroquois Hunt Club, established in 1880 by General Roger D. Williams. I love the rich color of the red sporting jackets and the priest’s robe. Tally ho!
