Men, women and children stand talking, smoking and playing in a backstreet, there is a sign, 'Paradise Gardens', outside a pub - 'Wine and Spirit Vaults - Fine Cordial - Gin' - waiting for it to open. A church clock in the background shows five to one, or maybe five past eleven. One man knocks at the closed pub door. One of a Series of mid-Victorian illustrations from The Illustrated London News, 1850.
