Although horse-racing prints constituted one of the larger classifications of Currier & Ives publications, there is one outstanding title: PEYTONA AND FASHION . It was published very shortly after the event took place and is thus one of Nathaniel Currier's earliest efforts. It portrays the running of a race in a series of contests between the North and the South. In 1842, Fashion, 5 year-old chestnut mare representing the North, had defeated Boston, representing the South, by the time of 7 minutes, 32 1/2 seconds to 7 minutes, 45 seconds for four mile heats. Three years later, in the race pictured, Peytona, owned by Thomas Kirkman of Alabama, won over the then 8-year-old Fashion. Time 7:39 3/4 - 7:45 1/4. This race was both sketched and put on stone by C. Severin.

     Titles say IN THEIR GREAT MATCH FOR $20,000. OVER THE UNION COURSE L.I. MAY 13TH 1845, WON BY PEYTONA Time 7:39 3/4 7:45 1/4 PEYTONA red Chestnut, Rider, Blue jacket. Black cap. FASHION light Chestnut, Rider, Purple jacket, Green cap.

A watercolour in the custody of the British Museum. It is a view of "East Side Soho Square Looking South" painted by J
Hosmer Shepherd.

The building with the coach drawn up outside is number 3 Soho Square which was the showrooms for the Kirkman Harpsichord business (and I believe one of  their private residences) from 1830 to 1892. The building was demolished in 1903.
