Abstract:
The wide street, lit by a full moon, is filled by a wild fight between undergraduates and their supporters (for whom gowns had been obtained by looting a tailor's shop) and 'bargees, and the butchers, and labourers'. A stage-coach, Old Fly, crowded inside and out, is wedged in the crowd, the outside passengers are assailed by a man in a gown. A woman empties a pot from an upper window; a lantern, hats, &c., fly through the air."--British Museum catalogue.
