ANTIQUE PRINT: NEW CHURCH STRAND : DUST O!

CRAIG, William Marshall : NEW CHURCH STRAND : DUST O!

London : Richard Phillips, 1804. A charming antique print – the dust-man rings his bell and cries out for the citizens to bring out their dust, ashes, cinders and refuse. Beyond his dust-cart is St. Mary-le-Strand. Everything was recycled – ashes sold for manure, cinders for fuel, bones to the burning-houses, and this daily service was entirely paid for from the proceeds – Londoners were not charged a penny. Engraved by Edward Edwards (1738-1806) from an original study by William Marshall Craig (fl.1788-1828), water-colour painter to Queen Charlotte. Originally produced for Phillips’ part-work “Modern London : Being the History and Present State of the British Metropolis” (London : 1804).
