Footnotes

  • The 1868 inaugural steeple chase of the Prince of Wales Plate was attended by the young Prince himself. His mother (Queen Victoria) was not happy 'I much regret that the occasion should be the races as it naturally strengthens the belief, already too prevalent, that your chief object is amusement.' The attendance of the future king (Edward VII) was recorded by the first known photographs of the meeting and in this print.
