EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, taken by John Gay in July 1959 at the Royal Show in Oxford, presents a young Highland calf in a pastoral setting. The image showcases the calf's distinctive appearance, with its shaggy, red-coat and distinctive horns that are characteristic of the Highland breed. The calf is tethered, gazing directly at the camera with a curious and inquisitive expression. The scene transports us back in time to the idyllic rural atmosphere of the Royal Show, where livestock were proudly displayed and admired by visitors. The Highland breed, native to Scotland, has a rich history dating back thousands of years. These hardy cattle were traditionally used for meat, milk, and draft work in the Scottish Highlands. They are well adapted to the harsh climate and rugged terrain of the region, making them a valuable asset to rural communities. The Royal Show, an annual agricultural event, has been taking place since 1838 and provides an opportunity for farmers, breeders, and enthusiasts to showcase their livestock and share their knowledge and expertise. This photograph is a testament to the enduring connection between people and their livestock, and the importance of preserving traditional farming practices and heritage breeds. John Gay's photograph is a beautiful and poignant reminder of the past, capturing a moment in time that showcases the charm and character of a young Highland calf. The image invites us to reflect on the history and traditions of rural life and the importance of preserving these valuable aspects of our heritage.
