Full image caption

Dandy Pickpockets. A countryman is studying caricatures in a print shop window, perhaps G. Humphrey, one of Tegg's competitors at 27 St. James's St. He is distracted by woman dressed in height of fashion while her male accomplices, both in extreme dandy dress 'dive' or steal from his pockets. This caricature is one of hundreds relating to dandies produced between 1816 and 1819.
