Hyde Park Corner — Picadilly Entrance. Gustave Doré (1832-83). 1872. This image serves as a headpiece to Chapter 12, “Under Green Leaves,” for Douglas Jerrold's London, p. 101. Click on image to enlarge it.
Whether Doré depicts workers on the docks and in factories, streets in the slums, or the leisure activities of the wealthy, such as Holland House — a Garden Party and Hyde Park Corner — The Row, he almost always creates a scene of people jammed together in large crowds.
