A City Chop House. A waiter carries a tankard and bowl towards the gentlemen diners at their table. The wooden partitions between tables are typical of the London chop-house of the period - such establishments were common in the City and along Fleet Street and the Strand until late Victorian times. They offered a lunch of meat and a pint of ale for as little as sixpence.
1810 AD - 1815 AD
