Full image caption

An illustration of a loaded cart bearing barrels from the Barclay, Perkins and Company brewery in Park Street, Southwark. From 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. Jerrold writes: "The massive drays are out; the prodigious draymen are arrayed in their leather, that would gall any limbs but theirs of Titan build; the stately horses that are the astonishment of the foreigner and the pride of the English brewer are tossing their noble heads and pawing the ground. The barrels are rolling and swinging in all directions. Thirsty London is being attended to, with a will".
