  • Description

    Horse sale in Edgware, London. Full title reads: "AMERICAN TROTTERS - Pacers and Show Jumpers fetch high prices, at first big sale of imported horses in this country."

    M/S Stable hands tack up a lovely looking horse to a trap in a yard. M/S Some entertainment seems to have been put on for the attendees, (or possibly the abilities of the horses are being shown off to buyers) as a horse and trap canters past a small crowd of onlookers standing outside a marque.

    The Crowd stands back as they pass by. This is repeated on numerous occasions with crowd members. A couple of over enthusiastic crowd members are lucky not to be knocked down at one stage. Other potential buyers scribble down hurried notes.
