Description: A fashionable pair (left) hasten away from a group of vulgar day-trippers. The former are slim and elegant, the latter fat and florid. She: 'What shocking Savages!!' He (with a monocle in his eye): 'Oh we must now leave this place; it may do for the Royal family, but not for a fashion-able one'. An ugly bandylegged child clutches the waistcoat of its bandy-legged and paunchy father, wearing top-boots and a squat bell-shaped top-hat, who asks morosely 'Wot time was we to be on the Rail-Road again?' His florid and dishevelled wife, with flaunting bonnet, holds a screaming infant. Behind them is a man carrying a basket and bundle tied to a stick. Behind are the domes and pinnacles of the Pavilion.
