Have you ever noticed that the more things change, the more they stay the same? Take, for instance, the Lahore Pigeon. The earliest information I can find about it is in J.C. Lyell’s book Fancy Pigeons. My third edition says 1887, and Lewis Wright’s book The Practical Pigeon Keeper with the first edition in 1879 and my copy 1901, in which Wright quotes Lyell as saying that the Lahore is a sub-variety of the Sherajee, or Sherazie depending on which part of India you were in. In England at that time they were called Tailors and Martins.
