Full image caption

An illustration of visitors to London, looking for overnight accommodation, taken from the book 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. Jerrold notes how, when major events such as the Boat Race or the Derby are in progress in April and May, 'many a traveller finds it impossible to get a bed, even in mighty London'.
