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


2 pp. 8.5x5.5", cover illustration of "Lavender". [Southampton]: P. & O. Lines, Oct. 23, 1953.

One of a series of London Cries painted as menu covers for P & O Lines. This image is for the cry "Who'll Buy My Lavender? Sweet Blooming Lavender" with a brief history of London cries (sales pitches yelled on the streets of London in centuries past) and the Lavender-girls of London. This image depicts a man smiling at an attractive Lavender-girl, with his wife frowning on his arm. Very good.
