Even More Trade Cards of Old London

June 12, 2012
by the gentle author

After publishing selections of trade cards that might have been found in the eighteenth century by rummaging in a hypothetical drawer, searching down the back of a hypothetical sofa, looking under a hypothetical bed, or discovered beneath the hypothetical floorboards, it is my pleasure to show this further selection that I happened upon in the pockets of a hypothetical coat.

    Love the ‘John Rigg ,Cupper’ advert, hilarious.

    And if you need to say “with the utmost decorum” you are practically hinting it might not be all that decorous.

    Tried to get Mrs F interested in a bit of ‘Cupping’ this evening but said she would rather spend the time dead-heading a few plants… Oh well…
