*NEW* P & O Lines. S.S. "Strathnaver" Menu - London Cries


2 pp. 8.5x5.5", cover illustration of the "The Milk-maid". [Southampton]: P. & O. Lines, Oct. 19, 1953.

One of a series of London Cries painted as menu covers for P & O Lines. This image is for the cry "Milk! Fresh Milk! Milk Maids Below!," with a brief history of London cries (sales pitches yelled on the streets of London in centuries past) and the milk-maids of London. Best is the cat looking down at the milk maids from a window. Minor foxing to interior, otherwise very good.
