Roundhay Park, geese at Upper Lake
September 1938. A young boy feeds and admires the geese next to the Upper Lake at Roundhay Park. These native geese have since become a rarer sight, thanks to increasing numbers of Canada geese, which were first introduced to Britain in the 17th century. The boy is captured next to a pram in characteristic style of the time.
