Full image caption

A poster with a black and white illustration of a crowd ascending in a balloon. The image focuses on the basket but the top of the balloon is missing.
Public hot air balloon rides became popular in the 1830s and Vauxhall was one of London's chief ascent sites. It is likely that this section of paper was part of a poster (the rest is now lost) advertising an ascent of Vauxhall's most famous balloon, the Royal Nassau.
