To Windsor by bike. It is Eton cricket day there and many of the aristocracy are down with their boys. Town is full of cabs. What an awful ill fitting habit they wear. Time they found a new style. Tall youth with low shoes light blue socks which were exposed to view of about 6 to 8 inches. Tall hat which came over ears. Awful spectacle.
On to Egham & Staines by road along Thames.
*In its heyday, in the late 19th century and early 20th century, “the School’s day” was one of the highlights of the London “season“, alongside Henley Royal Regatta and Royal Ascot. The number of spectators necessitated the first introduction of viewing stands and a boundary rope at Lord’s in 1866. The game made national newspaper headlines, and was attended by schoolboys large and small, their elder brothers and fathers, accompanied by their ladies and other members of London society. The match in 1914 was attended by over 38,000 people during its two days. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eton_v_Harrow
