Full image caption

A Coffee Stall. Oil on canvas. A baker's man, a boy wearing a City of London badge, seated in a wheelbarrow, and a young lady carrying a band-box are shown with cups of coffee, while the proprietress is washing up. On the left is a ragged girl with a broom, evidently a crossing sweeper, and a woman with a basket on her head.
The painting was acquired by the London Museum as a work by Charles Hunt and is signed and dated accordingly at bottom left. However, recent research has raised evidence suggesting it may be the work of Robert Dowling.
