An Englishman, and Irishman and a Scotsman, stand arm in arm on the pavement outside a haberdasher’s shop, ogling the pretty young shopgirl through the window. The fashionably dressed Englishman and Irishman start eagerly towards the shop, but the dourly dressed Scotsman hangs back, intimating that the young woman is likely to be too expensive. BM 14995.
