Description

A man holding a large knife stands at a street corner in front a hand barrow surrounded by dogs. The book offers the following information:

The food for these domestic animals is sold about London from barrows or small carts, and consists generally of the flesh of horses. As the vendor approaches, the cats or dogs bound out at the well-known cry, often forming such a group as we have here, in Smithfield.
