1864 – Prize Pigeons at the Philo-Peristeron Society Show

$7.00$28.00

“Prize Pigeons at the Philo-Peristeron Society” is a half page feature image taken from the January 23rd, 1864 edition, of ‘The Illustrated London News”. The Show was held in the Freemason’s Hall, and this drawing by Harrison Weir, is a wonderful historical record of the prize-winning birds, knowing as we do, his full knowledge of the structure of Pigeons and as a Champion Pigeon breeder of some repute himself. On Pigeons and the breeding of Pigeons he was consulted by the great Charles Darwin, who was also a member of the Society, and who visited Weir personally to ask questions about the mating habits of certain breeds. So it is to Weir that we also look for the most accurate historical artistic renditions of these birds, certain in the knowledge that his representations were truthful and accurate and not models of what the birds “should” look like. This image is now available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
