Scope and Content

Commonplace book, containing a later cycling diary, c.1850-1896.

Administrative / Biographical History

The volume starts as the commonplace book of Emily Sophia Coddington, the entries probably being made about 1850 or a little later. The latter part of the volume is the cycling diary of a young girl, perhaps a Coddington or a daughter of ESC. She may have been the future wife of G. Herbert Stancer, later secretary to the Cyclists' Touring Club.'
