Victorian illustration to download showing two young men and six young women playing croquet on the beach in windy weather. The wind ruffles the women’s hair and dresses and has blown one man’s hat off. He tries to retrieve a ball from the surf with his mallet. One woman is hammering a croquet hoop into the sand with her mallet. The title of this engraving was ‘Croquet under Difficulties’.
