Full image caption

Illustration from 'London: a pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872, showing an outdoor game played at the Derby. Jerrold describes seeing 'a noble earl indulging in three throws for a penny ... His lordship has taken heartily to the fun, and is reckless of the shillings he is spending. His cuffs turned back, his hat tilted upon his head, his face red and shining, he beams upon the applauding crowd, when he has deftly consigned a jack-in-the-box to the bag which makes it his.'
