Full image caption

Exterior street scene of a woman who is a streetseller. The woman is depicted making cups of coffee and a man wearing a protective cap with flap to protect neck and back, protests that he needs his coffee sweetened with sugar. Once a luxury sugar became cheaper when planters in the West Indies and Caribbean used slave labour on their sugar plantations. The Abolition lobby regularly encouraged boycotts of sugar as a campaign tactic against the West Indies Sugar trade. In this satirical cartoon, it is the London coal heaver who gives his own reaction to the boycott.
