A disgruntled older apple seller sitting on an upside-down basket is being pestered by a group of street urchins.
The full caption reads as follows:
Apple-stall keeper (to the boys). “Now, then, what are you gaping at? what do you want?”
Street boy. “Nothin’.”
Apple-stall keeper. “Then take it and be off!”
Street boy. “Very well: wrap it up for us in a piece o’ paper!”
