Administrative/Biographical History

The Cyclists' Touring Club was founded as the Bicycle Touring Club in 1878. It adopted the name Cyclists' Touring Club in 1883 and was incorporated in 1887. It was initially governed by an executive committee of four vice-presidents and had about fifty members. By 1880 the club had three thousand members and by 1886 some 21,000 members. Membership peaked in 1899 at 60,449. The club promoted cycling, organised rallies and produced guides and maps for members. It continues to champion cyclists and cycling. www.ctc.org.uk/

Case in the Chancery Division (Companies Winding up) of the High Court of Justice in the matter of the Cyclists' Touring Club and the matter of the Companies (Memorandum of Association) Act 1890. The Club had wished to alter its constitution by broadening the membership to motorists and all classes of tourists, calling itself The Touring Club. This proposal was accepted at the annual general meeting of March 1906, and following ratification at the confirmatory meeting of October 1906, a petition in Chancery was lodged and heard before Mr Justice Warrington. The judge dismissed the application with costs in December 1906 and the Club decided not to appeal. A significant number of members were opposed to this change, designed to attract an increase in members and thereby revitalise the Club. There was much correspondence in the Club Gazette, and the Club Secretary, E. R. Shipton, who was also editor of the Gazette, used his power in favour of the proposed extension of the Club. An opposition party, formed under the name of the Reform Party, opposed the petition in Chancery.

MSS.328/C/7/2/1-15 Rex v. Cladish and associated cases 1883-1908

Four boxes

Following the failure of the Club's petition in Chancery to widen the membership (see MSS.328/C/7/1), the Reform Party demanded an inquiry into office expenditure and accounts. The motion was carried at the annual general meeting in March 1907 and the Committee of Inquiry was to consist of 10 members, five members of the Club's Council and five non-members. They included a solicitor and two barristers. The Council refused to act upon this resolution, so another special general meeting was held in Birmingham in April 1907, which confirmed the resolution. However, the Club Council had determined on a postal vote of the membership to resolve the matter and so the Inquiry Committee was refused access to the Club offices on 25 April pending the result of the postal vote. About 8 June the postal vote was overwhelmingly in favour of the Committee of Inquiry. The Committee met and examined all the clerks in the Office which, it complained, had put obstacles in its way.

On 5th August 1907 the cashier, William Fuller Kent, gave himself up to the police and was charged on his own confession with embezzling money, the property of the Club. Other persons then implicated were the secretary, E. R. Shipton, the assistant secretary, Ewart, whose real name was E. W. Shipton, a brother of the secretary, James George Cladish, the chief clerk, and two minor clerks, Jameson and Horace H. Mandry. E. R. Shipton was alleged by Kent to have appropriated club moneys for his own use; Ewart was organising secretary for the Chertsey Liberal Association and was using the Club offices, staff time and stamps to carry on his political work. Jameson had embezzled stamps and postal orders. Kent had been a party to selling names and addresses of the members of the club to certain tradespeople and the payments made by the latter for this were divided between himself, Ewart and Cladish. There were false entries in the postage books, he and Cladish sharing the money. In May 1907 by Ewart's orders about 300 Club books of account were taken away and destroyed. This was after the Birmingham meeting and before the result of the postal vote. One postage book for May 1905 was saved by a clerk and contained suspicious entries against Kent and Cladish; in June Mandry was asked by Ewart to re-write the book in use in May 1907 because the balances or figures in it could not be explained. Mandry refused and the book was taken away by Ewart or Cladish.

Other matters: the secretary in December 1906 procured a man called Henchy to stand as a candidate for Council to prevent the unopposed return of Mr Williams who was hostile to the Office. Office time and equipment were used to promote Henchy's candidature. There were other similar instances with other members of Council.

The list of books kept in the Office supplied to the Inquiry was incomplete.

Ewart refused to give evidence to the Committee. For the past seven years he had practically run the office, engaging and dismissing staff and dealing with correspondence, whilst his brother E. R. Shipton ran the Gazette. This was contrary to E. R. Shipton's agreement with the Club. Both men had a rise in salary 1898-1899.

In the Chancery proceedings the joint affidavit of ERS and Cladish contained statements now known to be false by Cladish.

Counsel was asked whether a clear case could be made against Shipton, Ewart, Kent and Cladish. The Committee having heard the witnesses had no doubt that a system of fraud had been carried on for years. Richard Muir, counsel, thought proceedings could be taken against Kent, and against Ewart and Cladish for the larceny and destruction of the postage and letter books in 1907, and against Cladish for perjury.

The Cyclists' Touring Club wished to establish the legality of charging tolls for bicycles crossing bridges; this was made difficult by the fact that the Special Acts of Parliament under which tolls were levied varied in almost every case.

A case for the opinion of counsel relating to Dunham Bridge, Notts, Teignmouth and Shaldon Bridge, Devon, Lymington Bridge, Hants, as well as Cressage Bridge, with opinion dated October 1900, found that Counsel also on the whole thought the tolls could not include bicycles.

MSS.328/C/12/3 Lantern slides and negatives [?early 20th cent.]

Fourteen boxes of lantern slides and one box of negatives

These lantern slide boxes had recently been given a reference by alphabetical letter, A-Q (not all present). Q may have been synonymous with O. The slides are of views in the British Isles and on the continent, some of which are identified as having belonged to Mr Reavil(l), Mr Whall and Mr W. M. Robinson. A note on one of the cartons in which the boxes were found, asks whether boxes A and J could have been Neville Whall's lecture slides, and another in Box B implies that Box O also contained Whall's slides.

Following the deposit of material in February 2006 a few photographs taken from the lantern slides were found and have been added to the relevant box entries. Also, a typescript catalogue held at the CTC headquarters which identifies the many of the lantern slides has been transferred to this list, even when, as in the case of Boxes G and N, the original slides have not been deposited.

CTC editor's catalogue entry: Introduction: The lantern slides have been listed under areas for each individual box as they were received from various sources. Some boxes contain only negatives of tours:

Racing - Box A

CTC editor's catalogue entry under Q, but seems to be O:

CTC editor's note: These slides are the "Hodites" Collection (Neville Whall one time Secretary) whilst some are black and white colour tinted, most are colour transparencies. These are most likely to have been Dufay Colour, a colour film (colour starch grains emulsion) which came on the market in the mid 1930s as the first colour film for amateur use. Therefore the date of these slides was either late 1930s by one slide showing gentlemen in swimwear [sic]. There are however some 35mm slides from later tours after the war. The slides were not numbered in the list.

Near Agay - pines, sea and rocks. Agay - beach - 35mm transparency (this suggests a 1950s tour for this batch). Theole - sea front (2 slides). Near Le Levandou - garden (35mm).

See MSS.328/12/1/4, a photograph album apparently relating these negative lantern slides.

Note by CTC editor. This box contains the negatives of pictures taken by Neville Whall on his Continental Tours in the 1930s. There are many splendid views of high Alpine passes, some well known others not so well known. They were taken on "film pack", using a Voigtlander Plate camera fitted with an f4.5 Hellar 105mm lens, a top rate lens of that time which produced excellent 6cm x 9cm negatives. There are slight discrepancies in the alphabetical order through misplaced negatives in the collection at the time of cataloguing.
