Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of a street party: people eat at long tables, and a crowd gathers to watch morris dancers. In the background is a garlanded triumphal arch. These were celebrations at Evesham in 1852 to mark the opening of the Evesham to Stourbridge section of the Oxford, Worcester & Wolverhampton Railway.
