Set up for that special shot....1905

By HobbitDave
One more old photo restored and revamped in iPads Photo Editor. From c.1905.

Ive no idea what the event was, but spectators seem to be looking over the fence, and theres a photographer right on top of the old car with a very early plate camera, pointing it into the field. The two car drivers seem content to be facing this way, to have their photos taken.
Ideas to what the event was, folks? I though the two might be horse owners, theyve fixed the race so that their horse wins, they get a photographer to record the event, while they stand smugly looking the other way........probably nothing of the kind but it exercises the imagination!

Excellent image Dave, Isabel GrinGrin
A great find Dave. Wonder indeed what was over the fence. Maybe a horse race and some folk could not afford the entrance fee! Debs
