Full image caption

Image of a strawberry seller, with Covent Garden market in the background. Originally published as a series of 31 prints with drawings by W.M. Craig and engraved by Edwards. Strawberries were cried by both men and women in June in London suburbs. They were sold for sixpence in pottles that held less than a quart. The crier added one penny to the selling price for the value of the pottle that was refunded if the customer returned it. The criers' profit was between threepence and fourpence in the shilling.
