A street-scene of a tea-stall. On the table stands a large urn with written on it "Royal Albert early Breakfast Saloon", surrounded by saucers and cups. A small ragamuffin stands to the left holding a mug and blowing; behind the urn a man drinks away at his tea. In the background, people walk past; one lady in particular smoking a pipe with a large basket of vegetables balanced on her head. The lady serving the tea poised over a mug ready to add a spoonful of brown sugar; rejected immediately by the gentleman in the tricorn who believes that brown sugar is too common.
