Comments: This print by the celebrated artist Cecil Aldin depicts the lively crowd that has gathered in the time between two of the horse races. People of all ages and social classes gather in the fairground. To the right, a fight between a drummer and a man appears almost ready to break out. Elsewhere, clowns and jesters amuse the crowd, two young boys watch an early film TKTKTKTK, and people gather and chat animatedly in small groups. The print's vibrant color complements the vivacious and often humorous scene it depicts. It is in good condition, with stains and tears limited to the margins, not affecting the image. Cecil Charles Windsor Aldin (1870-1935) was a British artist and illustrator known for his paintings and sketches of animals, sports, and rural life. A skilled huntsman, Aldin often depicted horses and dogs in his watercolor drawings and prints. This print is a lovely example of his work.

I couldn't believe how fast you sent me this wonderful item! I didn't expect it to have anything on children's cookery (my focus), but because Juliet Corson is SO important, I bought it. What a surprise to find a "Boys' and Girls' Kitchen" column, and a tiny personal fact about J's childhood. I hit the lottery, so to speak. I'm ordering tons of diamonds to fall from the sky on you some lovely warm day. Don't I wish I could do that... - Barbara Abbott
