Full image caption

An illustration depicting carriages leaving Barnes common on the way home from the Boat Race, from 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. Jerrold writes: 'It is on the day of the boat-race that the boys of London are seen in all their glory, and in all their astonishing and picturesque varieties... We studied them in all the rich picturesqueness of rags - poor, hungry, idle fellows! - as they worked valiantly, trying to earn a few pence by disentangling the carriages and leading them to their owners after the event of the day was over'.
