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


2 pp. 8.5x5.5", cover illustration of "Hot Cross Buns". [Southampton]: P. & O. Lines, Oct. 25, 1953.

One of a series of London Cries painted as menu covers for P & O Lines. This image is for the cry "Hot Cross Buns, Hot Cross Buns, One a Penny, Two a Penny, Hot Cross Buns" with a brief history of London cries (sales pitches yelled on the streets of London in centuries past) and hot cross bun vendors of London (as well as the history of hot cross buns in paganism as well as the church). Very good.
