"A dandy (cf. British Museum Satires No. 13029) sits with folded arms in a four-wheeled gig on high springs, with a (lowered) hood, a coat of arms on the panel; beside him sits a lady eclipsed by an enormous bonnet. The gig is drawn (left to right) by men riding a velocipede (see British Museum Satires No. 13399) for five, the double bar converging to form a front seat for a single rider. Each man holds a steering handle. They wear jockeys' costume. Two liveried grooms on velocipedes follow the carriage; one is a negro. In the background, the farther side of the course is lined with tiny figures riding velocipedes."--British Museum online catalogue.
