description
An illustration of the Boat Race at Putney Bridge from 'London, a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. Jerrold describes the scene, with the Oxford and Cambridge rowers approaching 'amid frantic shouting, amid a snow-storm of pocket handkerchiefs and delirious ravings of purple-faced betting men'. The rowers are followed by a 'helter skelter' of steamers 'hidden under their human burden and gay with bunting'. On the bridge the varied crowd includes children, a soldier, two Black musicians and a Chinese man.
