Color print of London street vendors

Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.686

Cries of London print, with thirteen tipped in color plates of previously published illustrations of poor people who made their living on the streets of London. These picturesque scenes of urban outcasts, known as London Cries, were the most lastingly popular series of English prints. The pictures feature street vendors, such as Jewish fruit, rag, or ribbon sellers, and depict them as diligent workers deserving respect, not as nuisances or figures of fun. See record 2016.184.299 for another print of Sweet China Oranges, also included in this publication. The engraving is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.
