Courses For Horses - Ascot
The top image shows the area as it appeared in a 1920 street directory.
The image below has the Showgrounds (right) and is from renowned aerial photographer, Charles Daniel Pratt and is believed to be from 1924.  Ascot racecourse shows to the left, Flemington at the top.
Most of the surviving images include Ascot as a by-product of the other landmarks and little is known of the course layout. An alternative Pratt photo appears to show a number of cars parked inside the course on the corner of Epsom and Union Road.
