"All the world's a stage..."
"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players"; shows a group of amputees, jugglers, street musicians etc., at the corner of Golden Lane. On the left a black one-legged fiddler; before him on the ground a cloud "Reminiscences", on his right a "Notice to vagrants". Probably an allusion to the Vagrancy Act, 1824.
