The Night Watchman. A Watchman making the rounds. Watercolour drawing. A scruffy-looking man yawns as he patrols the streets with a lantern and cudgel. In the background two burglars are brazenly going about their business in an illustration of the inefficiency of parish law enforcement during the 18th century.
