This very formal carte-de-visite of the Earl of Mayo is our offering to start the week. I do not believe we have come across him before. The catalogue informs us he was Viceroy of India, what more can you tell us about this interesting man.
As I am writing this there is a report on the Tokyo Olympics running in the background, I see that "Skateboarding" is now an Olympic sport. I suspect parents around the world are getting some interesting feedback from their skateboarding obsessed children about their many "you are only wasting your time warnings".
