The Dennistoun Rounders Club photographed by Duncan Brown.
Rounders has been played in Britain since the 16th century. It is often called baseball in publications from the 18th and 19th centuries and seems to have been the forerunner of American baseball. The Scottish Rounders Association was founded in 1889 and this photograph probably dates from around that period.
Duncan Brown (1819-1897) was a talented amateur photographer whose work documents aspects of Glasgow life from the 1850s until the 1890s.
