[Dated 1840 and 1839 in plate.]
Lithograph, two images to one sheet. Sheet 380 x 275mm, 15 x 10¾". Some surface soiling/scuffing.
Two caricatures showing dogs in human guises, one stumbling drunkenly out of a gin parlour (above), two others pumping water from a public well. They are visual puns on the double meaning of the "cur" (popular slang for a mongrel dog and a disreputable person) of the captions.
