    That’s a particularly stern, manly, Yorkshire definition of ‘excited’, of course, at least for the charabanc in the foreground. Apart from the jolly chap in a panama hat to the right, who actually does look like he might be having fun. (The straw boater to his left looks even more out of place, but at least the fellow wearing it looks properly grim.)
