A woman with apron tied at her waist carries two baskets, one under her arm and one balanced on her head and resting on top of her broad-brimmed hat; the baskets are filled with fruit. She is a fruit-vendor, selling oranges and lemons.

Much of the trade of London was carried on by itinerants, then a more respectable aad thriving class than at present; these, too, had their cries; and their vociferations more than rivalled those of the shopkeepers. Among the noisiest of them were the venders of oranges, fish, and brooms. The orange-woman’s cry, though shrill, wsa often musical—

Fair lemons and oranges (Fig. 2055),

Oranges and citrons!
