Comments:
by Austin Sprake:
The huntsmen and hounds are shown in hot pursuit of the fox. 

by Geoffrey Godden:
This landscape view shows the mounted huntsmen and huntswomen following the fox and hounds across rolling countryside. It is the middle scene of the three-piece set, the first being "THE MEET" [see st428 on this site] and the last being "THE DEATH" [see st116 on this site].
The "FULL CRY" subject was registered on 24th November 1879, the title first being included on label 6, and most examples will be found on type B card-mounts. Examples on type C or E are found rarely.
Some rare card-mounts also list the title in French, 'Le Chasse' and in German, 'Jagdgeschrei' [more information about these triple title card-mounts]
