Two scenes: to the left; a small servant man appears before his master with freshly polished boots and spectacles, the man of the household stands towering over him reading a broadsheet paper in front of the fireplace, a table with a teapot and cups. To the right: in the street a washer-woman smoking a pipe blows into the face of a man of society who raises his hand to stop the smoke in revulsion.
