Originating in Persia (Iran) around 600 BC, polo spread through the region with the British learning the game from Manipur, India and taking up the sport at home in mid nineteenth century.

The quality of both the artwork and printing in this Early Sport series underscores the high status of Raphael Tuck & Sons in the postcard collecting world.
