Full image caption

An illustration of steam boats, full of Boat Race spectators, at Westminster Stairs, from 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. Jerrold questions: 'Is it possible that this tremendous rush along both banks of the river; this block of a dozen bridges, this unbroken water procession and these moving steamers massed to the funnels with humanity - can all be provoked by a single contention among a score of University students?'
