Description

A smiling woman wearing a bonnet is seen from the front carrying an empty glass in one hand and a bottle in the other. This illustration is inspired by the accompanying written sketch depicting Charlotte Chatham, landlady of The Castle, a tavern in the London suburbs. It is complemented by the following quotation from William Shakespeare’s As You Like It : You shall never take her without her answer, unless you take her without her tongue.
