"All a-Gog at Guildhall or the civic giants displaying their solid attachments". One of the City giants (Gog?) and Sir John Key kneel before King William IV while the other giant (Magog) lifts up Queen Adelaide and kisses her. The scene may illustrate the reception of William IV and Queen Adelaide by the City of London.
