A large woman sits awkwardly on a milestone, XI Mil[es]from Lon[don], in acute discomfort. Her head, in a huge flowered bonnet, is thrown back as she puffs out her cheeks, perspiration streaming from her brow. She faces the rays of an almost vertical sun. An umbrella and a bundle lie beside her. In the landscape background, figures chase a supposedly mad dog, as the foremost aims a gun.
