Description

London Types celebrates the affection residents felt for their city at the end of the 19th century. The series includes many depictions of women because the publisher William Heinemann, a strong supporter of the struggle for equality, advised the artist to represent both sexes equally. The scenes document London of the 1890s with contemporary references.
