A photograph of a woman walking past the crowds on the second day of Royal Ascot for the Royal Hunt Cup, taken by Edward Malindine for the Daily Herald newspaper on 19 June, 1935. The woman wears a flamboyant ensemble, complete with fur cape. The racecourse at Royal Ascot was founded by Queen Anne in 1711. As a racecourse favoured by British Royalty Ascot has become a highlight of the social season and is famous for its fashions, especially its hats. 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.
