Abstract:
A view of the Stock Exchange, filled with members; the wall-clock points to 1:30. A few sticks and fists are raised above the crowd, and a hat flies up. In the foreground a horse, led in by two members, is incited by others to kick, a practical joke on its owner. Members in the foreground are after, or vaguely resemble, City portraits by Dighton. ... On the right, Wright stands with raised hand, amused at the horse. Montefiore in profile to the right, faces Hibers(?). Others are mentioned, including Bish. Among the crowd a bearded Jew is consipicuous. On a raised platform at each side stands a beadle.
