Leslie Stephen, who is holding an alpenstock in this picture,
became a member of the newly formed Alpine Club at Cambridge of
which he remained a member until death: “I could walk and
run long distances.” In 1879, Stephen founded the Sunday
Tramps, a hiking club with his friends Frederic W. Maitland and
Sir Frederick Pollock.
