Returning from the Derby. This coloured stereo card captures some of the revelry as
groups of Londoners return to town after the race.
Dickens and W D Wills wrote a joint essay entitled ‘Epsom’ for Household Words where they described the array of vehicles arriving at Epsom: ‘Then came
flitting by, barouches, phaetons, broughams, gigs, four-wheeled chaises, four-in-hands, Hansom cabs, cabs of lesser note, chaise-carts, donkey-carts, tilted
vans made arbourescent with green boughs carrying no end of people, and a cask of beer'
