A photograph of two cyclists studying a map, taken around 1936 by Saidman for the Daily Herald.

The picture was taken to illustrate a story about a Youth Hostel in Ewhurst, Surrey. The Youth Hostels Association of Great Britain was formed in 1930. The Youth Hostel in Ewhurst ran from 1936 to 1983.

Two Saidman brothers, Reuben and Barnet, worked as staff photographers for the Daily Herald. Their photographs are simply stamped 'Saidman' on the reverse, making it difficult to tell which of the brothers took the photograph.
