European racecourses used to be places where women vied with each other in dressing up fashionably. The Derby, England’s most ceremonial horserace, is held at Epsom in the outskirts of London. It took place on the first Wednesday in June at the time of this picture, a panorama with inter-echoing bands of vivid color, which radiantly reproduces a festive day in early summer.
