Full image caption

An illustration of an elderly man selling clothes, from 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. Jerrold writes that the humour of the East Enders is "rough and coarse ... but there is everywhere a readiness to laugh. The vendor of old clothes, who addresses the bystanders in Houndsditch, throws jests into his address."
