  • Description

    Item title reads: "Hard luck! London to Brighton. S.M. Ayles wins Stock Exchange Walk in 8 hours 44 minutes 14 seconds missing making record by only 5 seconds."

    London to Brighton race

    Walking at its best - M/S of Westminster Bridge with a stream of walkers making their way along the first stretch. Big Ben is in the background and there are bicycles and trams on the bridge too. The competitors mainly walk and amble without the style of the modern speed walker. One walker gets a sponge on route and it looks like warm sunny weather. The competitors arrive in Brighton, one rushes through the crowd - he does have the modern sport walking style. He is pressed by the throng as he wins. Mounted police hold back the crowd.
