James Gillray 1756 – 1815
It’s a left over from wheelbarrow week. It is caricature, so you have to take that into consideration but still very interesting. Special note – watch for that sailor hat again. it is probably a worn out tricorn hat with the brim cut off almost entirely, it shows up frequently and at times looks very much like a bowler hat.
Detail: sailor, sailor hat, sailor clothing, military band, wheelbarrow, coins, money, tricorn, hair.
