A magazine dated 1893.

Entitled As Innocent as Babes

 

An original (from the date given, not a later re-print) 1893, early Louis Wain print from engraving on a full page from a popular magazine of the day.

Three dogs sitting to attention on a kerbside, pretending not to notice a chop (pork chop maybe) that has been dropped, probably by a passing butcher boy.

One of LW's very early works, pre - cats!

There is a print from engraving on the reverse and some poetry which seems to be the Union Song and taken from old prints of 1801, so the caption states.
