  • I would like to know more about this illustration. What are we looking at? It seems that the gentleman may be up to something unseemly.

    Lord Sandwich fondles a flower girl .This took place near Hannah Humphrey`s shop where Gillray may have witnessed this happening.The book titles in the window are relevant some refer to Sandwich`s father who was a member of the Hellfire club
