Pollock's Scenes in Whittington and his Cat.No.12 Trick Scene
Wood engraving with hand-colouring, scarce; sheet 175 x 220mm (7 x 8¾").
Toy theatre scene from the story of Dick Whittington, published by Benjamin Pollock. This unusually interesting backdrop of a London street shows the shop of an 'Oil and Colourman' and and emigration office advertising 'The Gold Fields of Australia'. The stock of slides and plates which remained after Pollock's death in 1937 formed the basis of a museum in London.
