A illustration for ‘London.’ Wood engraving by Paterson. Roses and Holly, London & Edinburgh: Nimmo, 1874, 134. 1½ x 4 inches. Charles Doyle’s interest in social observation and the comedy of manners is epitomized by this representation of a street scene in 18th century London; it could easily be a glance at Doyle’s own time as well.
