Mr. Foster Powell. Drawn from the Life.
Engraving. 171 x 102mm, 6¾ x 4".
Foster Powell (d.1793), pedestrian. Careless of money, his great walks were undertaken for trifling wagers: in 1792 he walked again from Shoreditch to York Minster and back in 5 days 15¼ hours (135¼ hours), for only 10 shillings. This was apparently his largest win!
