Description "A view in St Paul's Churchyard on a windy day"; Col Dalmahoy in a remarkable wig makes a pass at a young woman. The barber's boy has dropped wig boxes marked Dr Rock, Mr Dalmahoy (both of whom were well known quacks) and Mr Ibbetson. On right, passers by hold on to their wigs and hats. In the background is St Paul's Cathedral. The lower margin contains a verse.
