A photograph of a couple at the Derby race meeting at Epsom, taken by Edward Malindine for the Daily Herald newspaper on 5 June, 1935. The man wears top hat and tails - traditional dress by the 1930s. The woman wears more contemporary clothing. Both have badges allowing them access to the paddock. One of the most famous flat races in the world, the Epsom Derby was first run in 1780. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
