This anonymous, English drawing, captioned "The Hill to the Downs.– 'Done Up!'", shows a a double deck omnibus loaded with passengers, apparently making its way from London to the races at Epsom Downs. The right wheeler does not want to start, the guard is standing beside him and tries to pull him forward, the coachman is using his whip. The coach is stationary, as a smaller carriage drawn by two horses passes it.

A very nice, dramatic item.
