A group of photos of a hunt in the 1890's , showing all that goes on...hunting  was a busy social  event , many people to receive etc.

Fascinating. Thanks for sharing! Really brings some of the visuals that I was recently thinking about to life.
Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...

Love that train station in Bialowieza.   Reminds me of Cape May, NJ.   I must admit when I first opened your post I was a tinge disappointed they were not original color photos :)  You have us spoiled now BlessOTMA!   They were all wonderful -  except for the photo of the poor bison.  Thanks for posting.

Oh in that case  I would have put " COLOUR"   in the thread  title  lol...yes the bison photo was sad. I imagine these were taken for a keep sake album. Love how even the staff was shown . Indeed edubs31 , I was thinking how this shows something like a hunt in all it's stages.There is alot to royal events  and it's interesting to see that laid out
