Victorian illustration to download showing a group of well-dressed men and women watching excitedly and cheering from the top of their carriages as the racehorses gallop by on Derby Day. The grandstand rises in the background. The women wear elaborate dresses and many of the men have dust veils tied round their hats. In the foreground a man eats a picnic, a gipsy woman with a baby is begging, and a minstrel with his violin under his arm passes by, while one man sleeps in his carriage. This beautifully drawn picture is full of detail and incident. From highly detailed double-page original, so can be printed effectively at large sizes.
