An illustration of a butcher from 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. Jerrold describes walking around the area East of the City: "the Jewish butchers lounge - fat and content, in their doorways; the costermongers drive their barrows slowly by, filling the air with their hoarse voices. The West End Londoner is as completely in a strange land as any traveller from the Continent."
1872 AD - 1872 AD
