The Horse World of London – W. J. Gordon, 1893:

In 1891 the City took its day census, and found that 92,372 vehicles entered that favoured square mile during twenty-four hours; of these a third, chiefly omnibuses and cabs, were probably counted more than once; but allowing for these we should still have over a hundred thousand horses crossing the City boundary inwards during a day.
