Bread Price Fixing
"Benefits of a plentiful harvest"; showing Lord Mayor Scholey sitting enthroned and pointing to a pair of scales where a loaf is much lighter than the prescribed weight. On his right is a starving family; on his left are Corporation notables - William Curtis, Quin and Matthew Wood. This is a satire on the Corporation's involvement in fixing the price of bread.
