Bill, Peggy, Royal and Friends...London Horses

Alternative Title: N/A

Series Title: N/A


London town. A city where there is time for the horse. The working horse- delivering beer to the pubs or mail to the Royal Households, vegetables to the market or junk and scrap metal to the breakers' yards. Horses dressed in their finery for an Easter for police duties...parading at Ascot Races. Horses in ceremonial and traditional roles. Horses resting in their own recuperation center, or attending the annual Horsemen's Sunday Church service. The roles of Bill, Peggy, Royal and friends are as varied and colorful as London itself. Through these creatures, the character of this great city comes vividly alive in a cavalcade which ranges from cabbages to kings. (IFF catalog)
