Hand-coloured etching. 190 x 234mm. 7½ x 9¼". Trimmed into the platemark along the top, crease into lower left-hand corner.
Two scenes: to the left; a coquetish and rather rotund woman wearing a feathered hat and a large brightly coloured flowing dresses winks a very tall and thin man who holds his hand to chest sporting a look of shock and distaste at the lady's abrupt and forward manner. To the right: The town-crier with his bell stands speaking to the regular dustman who sweeps and shovels London's dusty into a wicker basket.
