Vintage drawing of a boy playing with a hoop. Victorian era children had a great deal of fun playing with a large hoop and trying to keep it rolling along as they ran beside. Sounds like fun and great exercise.
This vintage drawing dates back to 1869 when it was included in one of the children’s books published by Ward, Lock and Tyler of London. It was called Harry’s Ladder to Learning.
