A man us using a pair of brooms on long poles to stuck up a poster advertising an auction on a wall already plastered with advertising posters. He wears a top hat but his trousers have holes and patches; he carries a basket and has more posters rolled up in a large pocket or pouch.

The truth is that the “teapots,” “japanned cabinets,” and “buttons of brilliants,” which attracted the gulls of Queen Anne’s reign, were quite as much entitled to the epithet—“works of art,” as the pieces of plastered canvas vended by means of the London little-goes of the present day. (p. 48)
