Full image caption

An illustration of a crowded Derby-day traffic scene from the book 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. Jerrold comments that: 'Epsom is not Ascot we all know; but the Downs discover an extraordinary variety of superb "traps" every Derby day, bearing considerable burdens of such beauty as is not easily matched on any Continental race-course'.
