Goggles & Dust - The Horton Collection

Images from Cycling's Glory Days


Drawn from the one of the world's finest collections of cycling artifacts, Goggles & Dust collects over 100 stunning photographs from competitive cycling's heyday. Spanning the 1920s and '30s, Goggles & Dust: Images from Cycling's Glory Days celebrates the grit and determination of the bicycle racing pioneers who established the records, traditions, and distinct flavours of Europe's most hallowed races.

The spirit of these hardy competitors was perhaps matched only by the resolve of the remarkable photographers who prevailed in all imaginable conditions, situations, altitudes and latitudes to capture unforgettable prints of the racers at work and play. From Alpine panoramas to hair-raising crashes and idyllic roadside celebrations, the gorgeous restored photographs in Goggles & Dust - most unseen since their original publication in the newspapers and magazines of the day - provide an indelible and delightful record of a more carefree and adventurous time.

Includes original photographs of: Ottavio Bottechia, Eugene Christophe, Henri Pelissier, Andre Leducq, Antonin Magne, Romain Maes, Nicolas Frantz, Octave Lapiz, Roger Lapebie, Rene Vietto, and dozens more pioneers of cycling.
