A street scene in Shire Lane outside Allpress & Co. in the shop window a sign reads; The Best Bread at Nine Pence a Loaf . Two ‘bakers’ stand outside, on the cobbled strret, the first, who has a miniature person in his coat pocket, says; I tells you what you knows nothing at all about it.
A third man stands behind, in the shop doorway looking on.
