Pontefract Racecourse

We like the irony in this photograph. The location is Pontefract racecourse, one of the oldest horse racing venues in Europe. The chauffeurs have deposited their wealthy employers at the grandstand for a day of gambling, dining, drinking and networking. Meanwhile, they can watch the races (and probably have a flutter) with a much closer view of the action than their ‘betters’. The racecourse still thrives today.
