London: J. Young, 1 April 1786. {rtf1ansideff0{fonttbl {f0fswiss MS Sans Serif;}}pardf0fs20 Mezzotints, by John Young, both tipped onto 19th-century wove paper mounts}. Image size (including text): 13 3/4 x 10 3/4 inches approx. Sheet size: 17 3/8 x 12 1/2; 16 1/8 x 11 5/8 inches.

{rtf1ansideff0{fonttbl {f0fswiss MS Sans Serif;}}pardf0fs20 A pair of very fine mezzotints by one of the greatest engravers of his day.}

This pair of beautifully executed character studies were published by Young in 1786, the year following his issue of a pair of very similar prints after Johan Zoffany, titled The Water-cress Girl and The Flower Girl. As a group they can all be seen as precursors of Francis Wheatley's celebrated series The Cries of London.
