DescriptionA street scene with a coffee house on the left and a wax works on the right. Above the door of the wax works is a sign which reads 'The Taking of ST EUSTATIA'. In the foreground, from right to left: a newspaper boy carries a paper marked 'noon', two concerned-looking men converse, a third, with an angry expression, walks towards a beggar on crutches. A man and his son walk into the wax works, and a man wearing glasses sits on the pavement outside. In the background there is a street of terraced houses. Available on CD 157
