|A self-portrait (1858)|
Seen here on ships sailing in:
Spices / Sugar / Coffee / Tea
|George Cruikshank's 'A Swallow|
Waiting to be poured: Champagne / Hock / Port / Gin / Rum / Whiskey … to be drunk by the tankard: Frothy Beer …
Then happily standing in line waiting to be guzzled, gulped, swallowed:
Fishes (mock turtle soup available too);
birds various; pies; breads; cheese …
and numerous 'I don't knows' – notations too small or indistinct for me to work out …
|Portmeirion tea-cup ... for that |
Christmas relaxing cuppa
A coloured print can be seen here in AntiquePrintMapRoom - December a Swallow at Christmas - Rara Avis in Terra
With a lot of hopeful thoughts to those in the world who need care, love and compassion ...
Glad tidings to you all – be safe and see you the 31st – cheers!
PS Once again - no drink (yet!) ... but those wretched fonts have done their thing and faffed around with size etc ...
