Full image caption

Illustration of people socialising in the Zoological Gardens in Regent's Park. From 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. Jerrold notes that "Sunday afternoons in the season, after Whitsuntide" was a time to be seen in the Zoological Gardens. People are "meandering, lolling, flirting, laughing, or garnishing their discourse with scandal" while "the art of carrying a chair - possibly two chairs - with ease and grace, is being practised by dozens of gentlemen, with little success".
