Illustration showing crowds of people at the Derby, from 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. People are eating lunch on top of coaches, while entertainers are visible in the crowd. Jerrold writes: 'There is a brave, contentious spirit in the vast concourse, as the dealers in hundreds of articles, the tricksters, the mountebanks, the gipsies, and the betting men bend to their work, and fill the air with a hoarse, bewildering sound'.
