Cries of London

Active selection in cart:
Cries of London, No. 1. The vendor of rat-traps is pausing before a shop decorated with such live stock as a rabbit in a hutch, and a jackdaw in a cage ; he is offering his traps to a spectacled old gentleman, who is considering his ware with curiosity. The rats in a trap, carried on the trap-seller's arm, are exciting the interest of a dog. Artist/Etcher: Rowlandson, Thomas, 1756-1827; Merke, Henri. Date: January 1, 1799. Sourced from Digital Commonwealth website.
