Full image caption
Set in the street between the 'King's Head' and the 'Mother Red Cap' a working class crowd carouse and drink outside the Mother Red Cap while the men inside the King's Head are sombre, well-behaved and quiet. The political implications of this print was that the King's head represented 'Loyalists' or royalists while the mother red Cap is shown to be disreputable and appropriate for the Queen with her jacobite supporters.
