An old man sits in a chair is rubbing one foot which rests on a low stool with the contents of a bottle held in his right hand. A woman, wearing large spectacles, is seated by the fire, she holds on her lap the bare leg of a young man, and is about to apply to it the contents of a pot which she is stirring on the fire. On the wall is a placard, "Dr Steers Opodeldoc for Chilblains". Probably a quack chiropodist's establishment of a very humble kind. After Henry William Bunbury (1750 - 1811).
