  1. When my grandfather, August Kaun, (full name Carl Herman August Kaun) lived in London in the early 1900’s, he won a cycling metal from the Eldorado Racing Club. Could you provide any information about this club? The box that contains the metal is embossed: ELDORADO. R. C. 1900. My grandfather died in 1915. He was a tailor by trade and was born in 1878.
