Commentary
Mounted Brigade Sports at Ranelagh: There were excellent sports at Ranelagh today (Saturday) during competitions arranged by the 2nd London Mounted Brigade. Fair riders enjoy themselves on Army mounts, Ireland.

The 2nd Mounted Division was a yeomanry (Territorial Army cavalry) division that served in the First World War. At the outbreak of war, it was assigned to defense of the Norfolk coast. In March 1915, it formed a Second Line duplicate of itself, the 2/2nd Mounted Division. Leaving the 2/2nd on coastal defense, it then fought at Gallipoli from April to December 1915, under the command of Major General William Peyton. It was disbanded in January 1916.

Technique
Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.

Materials
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
